Masculine Card

Another VSN challenge from the weekend was to create a masculine card. I just bought this stamp set (Winds of Grace) and, bonus, I got it mounted right away. I have a bad habit of not mounting my stamps quickly but this one I really wanted to play with. I got a little heavy-handed with the watercoloring using reinkers. The boat is stamped on watercolor paper by SU which is the first time I've used it -- and it's fabulous!! Brown is a favorite color of mine - mix it with blue and I think it looks very masculine. I then found this designer paper by Wild Asparagus in my stash and knew I had my colors. Two jumbo eyelets with a little hemp pulled thru and interlocked completed the look. The words are a Sale-a-bration set called Lots of Thoughts...first time for using that set too!

What a lovely card! I hardly ever do masculine cards but this is a beaut!

Terrific masculine card! That is one area I definitely need some help in. TFS!
