I often go for muted colours for male cards but my husband tells me that he likes a pop of bright colour. So this design covers both options - after 17 years of marriage I'm an expert on compromise! The bird has been coloured in shades of brown while the background has been aqua-painted in Pool Party and given a Lucky Limeade frame. I think it gives a modern slant to a traditional image.
The way the bird appears to be peeking out of the frame gives a feeling of dimension to this one layer card and have you noticed that picking out part of the sentiment in Lucky Limeade links it to the image?
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Young Vermillion, Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess)
Ink: Pool Party, Early Espresso,
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Markers, corner rounder, aqua painter, stamp-a-majig
