You Da Man!

Here it is challenge number #2 brought to you my yours truly! VMAA is underway over on Are you over there playing with us?

When I thought of this challenge, I thought geez it would be nice to get some more ideas for manly cards.... I'm not talking about little boy cards. I'm talking about ADULT Masculine cards. Then I tried stamping... Yikes. What a hard challenge this was for me. I think it's because I wanted to do a "serious" card. Well, I ended up with two cards... Let me know what you think!

Card #1:
So, I was going for the serious one here. I liked it when I did it and then I slept. And I'm not certain it's what I was going for. I saw a card done by Mark of Deadbeat Designs (local Texas artist) and he did the road thing that way so I had that in my mind. Problem is that my road doesn't really go anywhere.... I thought trees would seem "mature" and manly.

Card #2:
I don't know a sole that golfs. It seems like engineers golf but I don't know any. Anyway, I used PENCILS on this to color... haven't done that in a long time! I used my new pencils...Koh-I-Noor Woodless Colored Pencils
They are one of Linda's favorite things and they work wonderfully.

Oooh, these are both super cool masculine cards!! I almost did a golf club card too!! I love the road you made on the top one!!

Heather said...

Very nice! Cool perspective in the "tree" one!

Karen said...

I like them both! I am seriously lacking in masculine stamps!

I like the road... I wonder if you could make it go into a tunnel? Aren't those Koh-I-Noor pencils fun to work with? Don't drop them though or they will break.

I love both these cards. The road card is such a great idea. With this challenge I realized I am lacking in male oriented stamps.
