Crazy 4 Challenges....Masculine Birthday Greetings

Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Time for a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog 

We have a fun challenge for you this week:

With Father's Day just around the corner lets make a masculine card.
Whether it is colors, textures, or stamps include a little masculine touch.

Masculine cards are not my favorite to make, but I do love the images in the Stampin Up Moon Lake stamp set, and they do work well for a masculine themed card.

I stamped the image onto some Naturals Ivory card stock and colored it with my aqua painter and ink pads.
I used Baked Brown Sugar for the tree trunk, Mossy Meadow for the tree leaves. The water is colored with Coastal Cabana and the boat is Smoky slate and Cajun Craze ink.

The base of the card is Crumb Cake cardstock, followed by a layer of the Naturals Ivory and then another square piece of Crumb Cake that is tilted and trimmed

The sentiment is stamped with Black Memento Ink and comes from the Wetlands stamp set.
The main image is matted with Crumb Cake and then trimmed with some DSP from the Typeset paper pack.
I used the Banner Punch with the same DSP and stapled it to the top of the image piece. 

Be sure and head over to the Crazy 4 Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team did with this "masculine" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
