I needed to make a masculine card for a friend whose birthday is this weekend. I liked the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge because of the clean, simple feel of the sketches, and masculine cards are better when they are not too frilly. So, I used the sketch from last week. Here is the sketch...
...and here is my card...
Stamps: Birds of Prey (SU!)
Paper: K&Co, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Staz-On, distress ink
Accessories: Sewing machine, feathers (from Joann)
The challenge for Simon Says this week is Things With Wings. I figure this fits right in.
I have not practiced distress ink water coloring on images other than Magnolia's. It was fun to get to play with some wildlife water coloring. I love the Birds of Prey for masculine cards. They are so beautiful!
I found these feathers in the Mardi Gras section of Joann. I got a ton of them, and they are not expensive. What a great embellishment for a masculine "bird" card. It brings the card to life.
Thanks for stopping by today.
