another masculine birthday card. . . .

for a friend:



The tree panel was created with an Art Impressions stamp which is just a single tree.  I used markers to add color to the stamp and stamped it three times.  Then I went back and inked it with just a brown marker and stamped it twice in between the others.  Sponged some wild honey over the trees and added a few dots with the markers here and there.  This is mounted on a nice gold-colored card, but it   looks very washed out in the photo. ( I should have remembered that from the last time.)

I'm sending this over to the Simons Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, the Seize the Birthday challenge and Word Art Wednesday challenge.

Hope your weekend is a good one!
