TAC Masculine Blog Hop

Hello all! A bunch of Angels over at Paper Wings are doing a Masculine Blog hop - since Father's Day is right around the corner this works well! Here are my cards.

This one is a CAS quick one. The tree image was retired some time ago. I stamped it in two different colored inks. Versamagic tea leaves and Memento Bamboo leaves. So, using a chalk ink and a dye ink worked really well for this. Isn't it kind of ironic that the ink names end in leaves?

I used my scor-pal to create some score lines. Paper pierced some holes and added four self adhesive gold pearls. Green card stock is from Bazzill.

This next layout is pretty simple too...

Bird is colored with Copic's. The textured kraft paper is actually packing paper from some shipment that I received years ago that I have hoarded. It's great to be able to recycle and be creative at the same time. Brown card stocks by Bazzill and had to finish it off by adding some gold pearls.

Here are the Angels participating in the blog hop. I was last on the list so you should have already seen all of these blogs, if not the links are below! Please stop by each of their blogs and see what they have come up with, and don't forget to leave some blog love! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Great job Laurie! Love them both! That textured kraft is so neat there! Gives it a nest like feel to pair with your bird! Your tree one is so nice, love the scor-bug / scor-pal bits too!

Love both the cards - coloring is great on the bird. I will have to try using the 2 diff. colors on a tree image - looks very nice.
