WWC259 – Dawn\’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Hello and welcome.  This week we are making masculine cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Dawn is our hostess.
Handmade Santa Fe Style Birthday card
Last summer my husband and I went on an old-fashioned driving vacation of the American Southwest.  It was a wonderful trip and when we were in Santa Fe, New Mexico I found a stamp shop that stocked designs by local artists. I combined three stamps to create this Santa Fe scene.

I stamped my scene, watercolored and then heat embossed a sentiment.

Supplies:
B&J Art Stamps by Judy Duke (Las Cruces, NM):  

  1. Santa Fe Gate
  2. Sunflowers
  3. Pear Cactus
Kuretake Watercolors
Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment Paper
Versafine Onyx Black ink

I am entering this card in:
The Alphabet \”W for Anything you Wish Challenge\”  I wished to make an outdoor scene card.

Shopping Our Stash \”The Great Outdoors\” Challenge  I enjoyed making this outdoor scene card.

A Place To Start Masculine Challenge I think the rugged gate makes for a nice masculine card.  

Addicted to Stamps \”Make Your Mark Challenge\”   I made my mark with watercolors and ink.

I am so pleased that you stopped by!
