Impression Obsession DT Challenge: It's a Man's World

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card with a masculine theme.  I married a hunter, so this new image from Gary Robertson called Hunting Season is a fun one for me. I went with a monochrome palette, using Touch Twin Markers to color the scene, and a sepia pencil to clarify some of the shading. The colors I used are below.

 I stamped the background using the Ticking Cover-a-Card.
