Challenge 129
M is for Men

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Men cards are always lovely to do but I really don't do enough of them.  For this card I cut a circle of water colour paper and stamped the scene.  The pheasant was coloured with Prismacolour pencils and fussy cut.  That was as far as I got with my planning and that is also when I became totally stuck, what background to use.  Could not go with patterns as that would be over the top busy grrrr.  In the end I opted for a sheet of Mulberry paper in brown, sounded great but boy did it look dead.  By now I was seriously confuzzled on what to do and in a moment of desperation picked up my fan shaped paintbrush and some gold paint and stroked that over the Mulberry paper - perfect.  I love the finish and will be doing this again, just enough texturing without being fussy.  The sentiment was cut out with gold vinyl and mounted on foam tape and the pheasant was attached last.  Do like the simplicity of this card and the 'nature' feel that is carried through all be it unintentional :)
