Platypus Creek Digitals Challenge - For the Boys

Welcome back for another awesome Platypus Creek Digitals challenge.  This challenge is For the Boys.  Please make a project designed for a Boy or Man.  Here is mine.

If you are like me, you don't make a lot of masculine cards.  It isn't as easy as it sounds.  Most of the papers I have are very far from masculine.  I searched through what I had and came up with this.  I started with the Blue Jay image from Platypus Creek Digitals.  I colored it with Copics.  I wanted to add some white gel pen to it but one broke and I can't find my other one.  I will have to go back and add it later.  I cut out my Blue Jay and popped it up.

I know bows aren't usually thought of as masculine but I felt like this card needed something more on the side. I am not sure who I will give this to but I will figure it out.  I thought at first it would make a good Father's Day card for my husband from our parrots.  Unfortunately, I made it while he was in the room so he has already seen it.  I still might give it to him.  I usually do something for him with a bird on it.  I hope you like it.

Please head over to Platypus Creek Digitals and see what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Your bluejay is beautiful. I love them!

Thanks for visiting my blog. The flower I had a picture of is a Hoya, a strange houseplant (my opinion) that really just likes to be left alone! Just my style.

Such a pretty bird. I love the color scheme too. I don't think the bow is too feminine. You could use it for your father-in-law since hubby already saw it.
