Masculine birthday

Hi everyone! Here's my take on the masculine challenge over at Less is More. I really liked the card made by Chrissie and was inspired by it to make this.

I was originally searching and destroying my stamp collection looking for a different stamp when I stumbled upon this Sunday International cattail stamp. I used Memento markers to color on the stamp and then huffed on it to get a decent image the first time (which NEVER happens for me).

I got out the air compressor and airbrushed a piece of vellum to make the "water" for the pond. To create the ripples I used the cloud border die from Paper Smooches and just turned it up side down.

Dragonfly is a Memory Box die. Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink.

Off to do chores. Thanks for stopping by!
