A Couple of Masculine Cards.

It was a poor nights viewing  on the TV last night,  so it was a good time to sit down a down and do a spot of colouring.

So I  stamped off a dozen images from a variety of SU stamp sets and sat down down with a big box of markers and began colouring.

This morning I had a nice little stack of coloured images ready to be turned into cards.

The first card is a tent style card and was made using the duck from  the Wilderness Awaits stamp set.
I was pleased with my efforts on this image.    The colours are a little stronger in reality than in this photo.

For base of the card, Instead of using lots of layers for the background. I used my square dies to create a Night of Navy card frame and a Pool Party square that fits exactly inside the navy frame.
This saves on card and reduces the overall weight of the card.
I did mount the duck onto a square of Navy for the panel.
For my second card I used the dog from the same stamp set.
You can't see it very well but the image is mounted on a piece of night of Navy card stock, then onto a piece of Night of Navy designer paper. The sentiment is from a stamp set called Riveting, the stamp has a small flower in the centre, which was not appropriate for this card, so I punched out a small circle of the DSP to cover the the flower.
