Easter Masculine Style

I have a single brother in law that will also need a card at Easter and this suited to the tee (no pun intended).  Cards for Men's theme this week is humour.  It is hard to be masculine with those adorable little chicks all around like that but the color theme at Color Throwdown 86 suited it.  I used this great image Chick Magnet from Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps and the challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays this week was to use texture.  I embossed the green circle, distressed the edges of the image and its mat, added liquid pearls to the socks and the ribbon should cover all of that.  The distressing also works for the Simon Says Challenge. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 132.


Stamps:  Chick Magnet - Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps
Paper:  Soft Suede, Garden Green, Whisper White, DSP
Accessories:  circle cutter, distressing tool, ribbon, metallic rub ons, Weave EF, liquid pearls, copics, coloring pencils, blending stump and baby oil
