Masculine Thinking of You Card

Hello! I hope you're having a lovely day. It's been nice and calm around my house today and that gave me some time to make this Masculine Thinking of You Card. The card started by finding the current color challenge CCMC352 at Create with Connie & Mary. At first glance I wasn't sure about the colors, but the design team came up with some wonderful inspiration and I had to play along. The colors are: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and Basic Gray. I decided masculine was the way to go and the Wetlands stamp set seemed to be the natural choice. I'm currently out of Soft Sky cardstock so I used a piece of paper from the Painted Blooms dsp. To add more color to the edges of the paper I sponged some Soft Sky ink. I stamped the goose onto watercolor paper with Memento black ink and used my aqua painters to add color. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the Soft Sky Paper using Memento black ink. I embossed a narrow strip of Wild Wasabi cardstock using the Arrows embossing folder and added some Basic Gray twine. That's it! There is still a couple of days to play along, click here to go directly to the challenge. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
