A Masculine Card....

Hey there!!  Another week is drawing to a close... time sure does fly!!  I have a card I made using the current Mojo Monday sketch.   Mojo Monday is one of those challenges that I have often wanted to participate in, but never seemed to find the time.  I'm hoping to change that and play along more frequently.  I'm also going to be putting this card into the current Paper Players challenge to make a masculine card with clean and simple lines.  I think my card fits the guidelines...



Anywhoo... I don't have a ton of masculine stamps, but I do have a really cool set from Flourishes called "What a Catch".  I used the image of a fish from the set for my card.  I colored him with Copic markers using some tonal greys, a yellow/green (YG91) and a dark teal blue (BG09).  The piece was then lightly inked with Broken China and Old Paper Distress inks.  I was a little scared to use the fish image, but in the end I really happy with how it turned out!   I used some My Mind's Eye Breeze patterned papers, as well.  I think I will be sending this to my brother when father's day rolls around.  Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Fine Linen & white; SU! Pacific Point & Old Olive; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  Flourishes; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Ranger Distress Ink; Twine:  May Arts; Copic Markers

It is a great Mans card Rosie, I have never made one, just shows how versatile you are as well as super talented. Is there any genre you can not execute successfully?
