Masculine Motifs {SFYTT}


My sketch card today is doubling as a birthday card for my 12 year old nephew...Happy Birthday, Anders! I love to create personalized birthday cards for my nephews and nieces, and you can tell from my card that Anders loves to hunt! Besides being an avid hunter of deer and turkey, he also loves to fish, and on top of that--he's an all around GREAT kid!


I used PTI's Masculine Motifs, stamping the deer image several times across the circle panel without reinking and I really like the look. It reminds me of early morning or early evening deer sightings, watching them graze in the early morning mist or as the sun sets. Ok, so my hubby loves to hunt, so there have been many an opportunity to look-see this familiar scene! The chocolate layer was embossed with PTI's woodgrain Impressions plate, ruffed up a bit on the lower edge for a little more texture. I added button twine as my lower horizontal layer and a bit of piercing to add more focus to the main image. Lastly, I think the mix of greens is sort of fun and gives that "camo" look, something we see much of in my house!

Let's see what the sisters have done with the sketch and give a warm welcome to the fabulous September Guest Designer, Tori Wild!
