Make It Monday #261 with Betsy - Using Florals on Masculine Cards

This was definitely a challenge for me as I rarely make masculine cards and these are not my go to colors. 

This was the challenge on MIM with Betsy
Masculine-still 

PTI's In Bloom colored with Zigg water colors on Bristol cardstock.  Boy that really works well with the Ziggs.

  1. Linda what a fantastic result, if definitely has a masculine vibe but versatile as you could easily gift it to a woman!

  2. I really like this a lot; the colors and composition are great. I love the pop of blue. If it were mine I might add a piece of blue twine around the houndstooth panel, and maybe some blue enamel dots, if I had them. (I have the twine, but not the dots.)
