3 challenges in one card

I'm combining 3 challenges today.

The color challenge at Pals Paper Arts,

the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday,

and my own personal challenge to make a masculine card when
my first reaction would be to do something feminine.

Here it is

I used a couple different techniques. I masked off the card base
and sponged on the three colors. With the brush end of a marker
I added the line of soft suede to frame it.
For the stamped image I brushed the three colors onto a clear block
 and then pressed my paper onto it. I was going to do the background
 with painter's tape when I realized I don't have rose red and wild wasabi
ink pads, just markers.
I like how that turned out.
Adding soft suede to the mix, keeping the colors soft and of course
the moose helped with my own challenge of making the card masculine.

I'm very happy with how it turned out.

card stock: whisper white, confetti white, soft suede
stamp set: walk in the wild
ink: rose red, wild wasabi, so saffron, soft suede
big shot: circles collection

Happy Stampin'
and thanks for visiting!
