I am slowly working on adding to my masculine card stash. It seems my masculine cards are mailed out as soon as they are created! I mixed a fun bunch of textures to pair with the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday–
My elk was stamped in Intense Black ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. The pencils were blended out with Gamsol. I mounted the elk with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. I felt like the card needed a bit more green, so I added in a strip of green burlap to sub for grass.
I carried my color scheme to the inside of the card as well. I pretty much save all my little bits and pieces, just for using on the inside of my cards.
All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
