Sketch-On-Saturday SOS8: manly card

Welcome to another sketch card idea for Sketch-On-Saturday (SOS8)….
Here’s the sketch, with a rotated version too:

And I thought that a fairly simple, layer-based sketch might suit a masculine design today. When I came up with my sketch I was thinking of keeping it as ‘unembellished’ as possible ๐Ÿ˜‰
So I guess that would suit a guy card… Maybe??

What do you think? Neutral, earthy colours, adding interest with scored lines – which don’t show up too well, sadly – and simple brads. And a bit of stamping with theย Hero Arts wood-mounted stamp, ‘Vintage Map’, H2978 for the star-of-the-show focal image.

Watercoloured in more neutral colours, blended with my waterbrush (finally found it after it was MIA!!)
This stamp was actually one of the first I ever bought… so many moons ago! It’s still pretty cool for loads of design ideas, even after all these years ๐Ÿ˜‰
