Watercolored Masculine Card

I have been playing around with my watercolors and made several cards using them. I will share some this week that are all masculine. It's something I don't do often, so these cards are a little different from my usual style. I did enjoy making them and seem to always be in need for masculine cards.

Today's card is a CAS Christmas card with no stamping! I first water colored my background with fall colors. I wanted to go with  non-traditional Christmas colors. The deer was die cut using my Silhouette. I lost the wall plate part somewhere along the way, so I hand drew it using my Copic Multiliner pen that I won a while ago from a giveaway. I'm glad I was able to finally use it.

The sentiment is hand lettered. The patterned paper is actually chevron, but it shows as stripes here. I propped the deer head using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares. And who says a masculine can't have a bow? I guess as long as it's twine, it's okay. :)
