Masculine Birthday

Hello All & Happy Weekend!

I always have a need for masculine cards in my stash
for the craft show so when I see the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge
is 'Masculine', I just have to jump right in and play along.

Design team member Kath Ricks creation caught my eye
and I was inspired to do something similar so I reached for
my Stampscape stamps and here's what I came up with:


The background paper is from a very old DCWV 12x12 pack and it is a mutted green color.  
After stamping my image on the white panel, I marked where it would be positioned on the background paper and then stamped my trees so they would be on either side of my image.  I used Tim Holtz distress oxide 'salty ocean' and sponged the top portion of both panels (for the sky) as well as a little in front of the cabin for the water.  The remaining coloring was done with Prisma pencils.

I have used a stamp set from 'My Sentiments Exactly!' for both front and inside sentiments.

I find this is the easiest way for me to create a masculine card.
What guy doesn't like a cabin in the woods?  
(or girl for that matter!)
