Masculine Postcard Collage

Okay, one more reminder card for Seize The Sketch #21!  This sketch was SO versatile, I found myself using it without even realizing it!  After I made this card, I thought, "Hey, this looks familiar...." and so a Reminder Card was born.  =)


I turned the sketch, as you can see.


I made a collage using a bunch of different stamps (listed in the supply section at the end of this post), and I intended for this to look masculine.  Did I succeed?  I'm not so sure.

Here's a cereal-box-chipboard star...I've got a whole bunch of those, just made up and stored in a zippered plastic bag.


The piece de resistance is this sweet Susan Winget die cut bird and nest from K & Co.  I love her work.


There's still a little bit of time left to play with this sketch at STS!  Click HERE to link up.

A woderful masciuline card. I love your clever use of that glittered star. Every card needs a little bling:) And this is a brilliant idea. Brwon is not my forte but it definitely is yours; it's gorgeous.

Lovely! I always forget about my chunky glitter, which is so old it was from before they called it chunky glitter. Beautiful masculine card. Love the bird and nest. I forget sometimes that masculine cards can be beautiful, too.
