I love the classic images when I am making masculine birthday cards - I make a lot of them, I do the cards for our church along with a big family and lots of friends.
I tend to be more conservative making the "man" cards using traditional images
and deep rich man colors!
Here is my card:
For this card, I picked one of the Magenta classic images. This beautiful Owl was such a pleasure to color. I actually had to do it twice the first time I grabbed the wrong ink pad and used a watercolor on a memento ink: Which caused the image to just about dissolve. I liked how it came out but, that was not what I wanted for this card! So instead of stamping out a new image, I just switched to alcohol markers as I stamped it twice ( I always do).
Here is the difference: This image was done in Alcohol markers the second in watercolor. I did use the second image to make my owl and create the moon effect.
I created layers using the Birchbark wrapping paper,
mirror paper and a page from an old book all from stash:
I purchased these fun pads from Amazon to keep my swatches together - Love them!
I still have this guy to create with, I think he will become an ATC!
Here's the stamp with a link:
This image is 3.25x2.5
A really nice size for a focal image and an ATC!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
I decided I really did want to make that ATC,
here It is!
