Howl of the Lonely Wolf


Here is a swap card that I made last week. I bought this set because I don't have too many stamps that have a masculine touch -- several baseball themed ones, but that was about it. When I was working on this card, hubby walked by and remarked that it was not like what I usually made - DUH!! Ya think!?! There's not a rhinestone or piece of glitter anywhere on this card!
I colored my foliage and my wolf in the same way. I inked up my stamp using markers, shading directly on the stamp. For the wolf, I used a sponge dauber to blend them even more. You can't tell in the picture, but there is a little bit of texture to the wolf too from the sponge. Distressed edges and a swipe of an ink pad on the background finishes it off. I created the sky by scribbling on a stamp case with my marker, then picking up ink on a sponge dauber. It's a mixture of dabbing and swirling the color onto the paper after that.
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a beautiful weekend!! It's been like fall around here for the last week and today is shaping up to be a rainy, grey one!! I just LOVE IT!!!

Really nice card! Love the colors I need to get some decent markers and inks so I can stamp again.
