A Manly birthday card

My brother in law's birthday was this past weekend and I got the old "can you make my brother a card" on Thurday evening! Thank goodness I had a good case of mojo going on!!
This is another Stampscapes creation in case you don't recognize the style.
I tried my hand at stippling (using a stencil type brush to apply inks) on white glossy cardstock. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
I matted the image on a piece of Bazzill cardstock and used linen texture cardstock for the main cardstock.
I stamped my sentiment and added dots using a Tombow marker.

Christmas Pelican

I did another Tombow marker class a few weeks ago so have been on a bit of a Tombow kick again. I've been eyeing this image for a couple of years now and I was lucky enough to have a friend lend me this stamp! Thanks Leslie!
I stamped this Impression Obession image on watercolor paper with my Versafine Onyx black ink and colored him with my Tombow markers and bender pen.
I added Diamond and Waterfall Stickles to the stars and matted him as shown.
Pretty simple card and I got to practice coloring in the lines! :)
Thanks for looking!
