Noble Deer

I have a simple, masculine card to show you today that would be perfect for the hunter or wildlife enthusiast in your life.

Because I made this card for a guy, I kept the sketch very clean and simple.  I used fall paper from DCWV "The Pumpkin Patch" matstack.  My image is from retired Stampin Up! "Noble Deer".  This stamp set gets a lot of use from me as I know so many deer hunters where I live.  The sentiment, believe it or not, is from PTI 'Mothers'.  The font just worked perfectly for my card since it's so plain and simple.

 As much as I love this set for guy cards, I have always found the images very difficult to color.  I water colored this image using water color pencils.  I think pencils or watercolors work best with the images in this set.
 A simple chipped wooden button and twine was the only embellishment I added.
Have a great day!  Amy
