Trying Masculine.....

Hello everyone: I don't know about you but for me, masculine cards are difficult to make.  I love flowers, cute little critters, pretty tea pots and not so scary ghosts and witches but, making cards for men really stomps me. When SU offered The Wilderness Awaits , I immediately bought it, all 4 images are gorgeous and very masculine, like this magnificent Elk with it's imposing rack.  Here is the card I made for the "Less is More" MASCULINE challenge.
I love this image, it's just perfect for a masculine card, I just stamped it onto Canson water color paper and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil. I hand drew the distant mountains and just sponged a little Wild Wasabi around it.  The sentiment is from an old Flourishes stamp set, it's stamped with Baked Brown Sugar, the only embellishment are a couple of candy dots.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
