I'm on another masculine card kick - not by choice!! LOL!!
I thought I would work with a little coloring this time as I noticed I haven't uploaded many cards with my own coloring, probably because I avoid it!!! But, I've seen so many beautiful ones that I thought I should sharpen up my skills. It's still a work in progress!
I used copic markers for the sky and SU markers for the deer, grass and trees. I then ran my image through my cb with the swiss dots ef to give it more texture. I also ran the b/g paper I stamped with the Sanded B/G stamp through the cb using the same ef. Used my label dies for the image, a little stickles for the wataer line, three specialty buttons, a sentiment and it's done. I actually did end up enjoying making this card.
Thanks so much for looking and if you have a chance, let me know what you think!

How did I miss this one?? This is fabulous Pam!!! I know the dreaded Man Card is hard, but you've made it look easy! Your colouring looks fine (don't know what you are worried about!), great BG stamp for this card and love the rustic buttons!!! Fabulous!!! :)

Oh no, I've managed to let this one escape my ever watchful eye, too. Geez, I cant believe how much you've upset so that know it must be when I see your name under a card I immediately go on to the next one. So wonderfully masculine and so uncluttered. Really a neat card.

Pam, this is one of my all-time favorite sets! You've done an awesome job coloring it and your sketch is fabu. Your Sanded bg and those buttons just top off an already beautiful creation! I also love the fact that you put your image within those dies. Perfect!

Thanks SCSers for all your encouragement!
This is an awesome masculine card! Love how you colored the main image and those buttons are the perfect complement to the sanded look of your designer paper. I may have to start contracting your services when I need a masculine card! LOL You seem to have them down pat :O)
