Masculine Cards






Over the past few years, I have been making birthday cards for my mom to use. I have been working on some masculine cards, as she has son-in-laws and grandsons that like nature and also hunting. I have had these stamps for a long time. They are by Stampa Rosa and the artist is a Ken Michaelson, I believe. They have been inked up, and then put back in the drawer as I couldn't find a coloring medium that I liked. Well, I dug them out again and went at it with my handy-dandy Copic markers, and this is the results. Please let me know what you think.

Hugs,

Deb

Deb, they are awesome--omg you have made perfect masculine cards. The third one is my favorite--the teal duck head--it looks like a painting. Truely super cards.

Stunning cards Deb. And I have heard that the colors are very accurate. This coming from a very accredited source of course.

Great job, Deb -- your coloring makes them appear so lifelike, that they almost look like a photo, instead of a stamp!! It's always a challenge to make a guy card, but these are fantastic for them . . .

Deb, those are wonderful! Very realistic, and I think the name of the artist is correct. For many years I collected Duck Stamp art work, 1st of State & 1st of nation.

Your layout and colors are perfect!
Hugs, Pat Amith

Merry Christmas Deb. You have done a wonderful job with the Copics. I really like these images. If you want animals Grey Wolf Graphics in Michigan is the place.

Those ducks are fantastic done in the COPICS!! I am so inspired!! Now I find stamps I had before sitting around I dig out and color with COPICS as well as the shading aspect much easier. The men who receive these will love them!!
