Masculine Birthday Wishes

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #34 – colors.

CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #34

And here is my take:

by Karen @ carefree creations - Masculine Birthday

My hubby’s birthday is in a few weeks. I thought this week’s color challenge paired with a moose image would make a great card for him. I did use a sketch from dahlhouse blog.

After doing a watercolor wash with Summer Starfruit in the background, I decided that the panel was a bit plain, so I used some old Smooch Spritz and the Spritzer tool to add some splots of the dark brown color.

  1. Oooooo, that bit of water coloring is beautiful. It adds a lovely soft touch of color that is still “manly.” Heehee. I love how wanna sketch inspired this stunning card. Thank you so much for playing along.

  2. I think the spritzing was a smart idea – it adds just that little bit of “oomph” that takes a card from good to great. I really like the watercolored background. I never think to do stuff like that!
