Mojo Monday #534

I am slowly working on adding to my masculine card stash.  It seems my masculine cards are mailed out as soon as they are created!  I mixed a fun bunch of textures to pair with the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday-

My elk was stamped in Intense Black ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The pencils were blended out with Gamsol.  I mounted the elk with 3-D foam tape for added dimension. I felt like the card needed a bit more green, so I added in a strip of green burlap to sub for grass.

I carried my color scheme to the inside of the card as well.  I pretty much save all my little bits and pieces, just for using on the inside of my cards.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
