I have a very simple and (hopefully) masculine card to show - I am using a stamp called Sick Little Bear - don't you just feel sooooo sorry for him! For the sentiment I layered three of the same stamp from Whimsy Circle Postmarks set.

The image is coloured using Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I should REALLY practice more with that technique.

Thanks for joining us and we hope you are enjoying all the Whimsy Stamps fun.

Very cute sick bear, and yes, I feel for him. Great man card too, as the sentiment is perfect, saves you having to say it to a man when he is sick,over and over, as you know men get sicker than anyone..lol..

Aww poor little guy! What a sweet image Annika and you worked your magical touch on him by bringing him to life with your fantastic coloring. Gorgeous work as always!! big hugs, Angela

Tracy said...

I have got to learn to mix and add elements like you do. I'm way too OCD about everything matching. I can't see where you need any practice on the coloring. Little bear looks fantasticeven if he is sick. :-) Hugs!

I've been browsing your blog now for the past minutes and the conclusion was I just had to become one of your followers. Love all the gorgeousness on your blog, very inspiring!!
