Sweet Stamps-Masculine

We are making masculine cards at Sweet Stamps this week.


  I stamped the little buck from the Big Bucks stamp set in Rustic, Forest,  and Butterscotch Shades Die Inks.  I also added the bullseye image from the set in Beach Shades Die ink, and the hoof prints in Sandcastle Ink.
  I used SU cardstock, stamped the buck with Butterscotch (the rack) and Sandcastle, then watercolored the face of the deer from the ink I stamped it in.  Next, I used the ATC Basket Weave stencil and added a little background using Burgandy Shades die ink.  I used plain Mustard cardstock and distressed the edges.
 The border is from Globecraft Piccolo called Braided Borders and is embossed using Real Rust Enamel Embossing powder. (Using the enamel EP Adhesive).
 I stamped the sentiment in Valentine and Sandcastle ink.

Challenges:
Fantasy Stampers- Boys Rule
Lunagirl Moonbeams- Animals

Thanks for stopping by!

Marvelous, Shelley! Love that deer. I'm offering my apologies for not commenting on every post you did while I was gone for 2 weeks. I find I'm getting more and more buried as I visit my fav blogs and have run out of time to comment on every post that went up while I was off galavanting on vacation. Still, I had such a good time that it's hard to feel too guilty. :-D
