Make it Masculine

There is a new challenge over at Allsorts where the Theme is Make it Masculine. It seemed the perfect opportunity to share some makes using new stamps with you. I have been busy making Steve's Birthday card and then I made a second using the same stamps...not sure which to give to him now!
 For both I used Inkylicious stamps - Celestial moons and planets and Reflections Alaskan Pines. I also used watercolour paper and Koh-I-Noor watercolour paints. This first one was a bit of a mistake. It was looking beautiful until I stamped the trees in Versafine clair and then put it through the guillotine before it was dry... More planets were needed to cover the fingerprints and smudges! The second went a little more smoothly!
Here is a close up of the base card - I stamped the planets in Versamark and dusted with a variety of cosmic shimmer powders.
I am also entering it at The Male Room, where the theme is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Beverages (Thanks Faith!) Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

Isn't it often the way with not waiting long enough! I'm the worst but trying to get better lol! But I think they both look fab - I prefer the second one just because the scene is a little more ethereal.
thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts.

Beaut cards, Sal, so agree re which to chose, but think the second is better myself, wouldn’t have thought of that design but looks great.
Nice use of new stash!
