Masculine Birthday Card

I specifically got this stamp set for my sweetie. He loves hunting pheasant (among other things) so when I saw it I knew I would be using it for his birthday coming up.

To make the background I cut out a circle from masking tape, then using a brush and Adirondack reinkers I applied washes of color from light to dark to the paper. I can't brayer backgrounds worth a hoot, so this was my way of doing it. The pheasant is stamped, embossed, then colored with Adirondack markers, and carefully cut out.
I'm pretty happy with it, I think Jimmy will like it! Now to figure out what to get him for his birthday....
