Another Batch of Macsuline Cards

I am back again with some more of the masculine cards that I made for my brother. Just to recap: he asked me to make him a year's worth of cards. He likes my cards better than the store bought variety. His is so sweet. Anyways, I made cards for him all last week. Today, I will show you two more of the cards. They are both Birthday cards. Here is the first card.
This card uses a Stampin' Up image that was watercolored. I also used a marker on some areas. I stippled the turquoise(Bermuda Bay) CS with a stamp and several different ink colors. Here is a close up. I also added some metallic ink the edges.
The second card is another of the "metal" backgrounds that I made recently. The foil was wrapped and glued to a piece of CS and run through the Cuttlebug with an Owl embossing folder. Color was added with alcohol inks. The sentiments on this card are from Gina K Designs.

And here is a peek at the inside. Perfect card for a guy.
A few fun challenges for my masculine Birthday Cards;

  4. Wow! Karen, the first card reminds me of "Hot August Night". It's a car convention held in Reno, NV, every August just before the Balloon Races. The second card is so wonderful and creative. I really like what you did with the owl folder. I need to try that too! I have it and haven't touched it.
