With Special Thoughts of You~

Time for a masculine card I say....and clean and simple it is for me this week for my Rubber Cafe project.

I wanted a soft watercolor effect on my card, so I stamped my trees with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Ink!  I stamped the Barbed Wire Fence in Memento ink and then colored it with my brown Copic marker.  I then diluted the stains a bit with water to watercolor my sky/grass background.

For the background I *painted* my Pine Bough image with more distress stains.  I stamped my image and then blotted up any puddles of ink. 

A touch of faux stitching and the With Special Thoughts of You image finish off my card.

You've nailed this distressed masculine look. It goes great with the stitching and layering. Nicely done! TFS.
