K1-694 - du bist sooo cool

Karten speziell für Männer find ich oft nicht ganz so einfach zu machen... irgendwie ist "neutral" einfacher. Ab und zu versuch ich mich aber doch mal wieder dran... So wie heute.
Masculine cards aren't always easy to make... Somehow it's easier to create "gender-neutral" cards. But sometimes I give the male ones a try... Like today.
K1-694 - du bist sooo cool
K1-694 - du bist sooo cool - Detail
Ideen zur Karte:
Ich wollte gerne einen deutschen Text zu der Kuh und hab daher mal etwas herumgespielt... 
Kuh Kuhl → Kuul Cool.  Dabei hab ich das englische cool zuerst mit einem hellgrauen Marker geschrieben und dann mit einem feineren schwarzen das c zum k umgewandelt und den beiden o "U-Hörner" aufgesetzt.
Damit die Kuh oder eher der Stier/Ochse/Bulle (???) auch sonst noch zu etwas Besonderem wird, hab ich den Kreis ein wenig wie eine Sieger-Rosette gestaltet und die vielen Sterne zugefügt.
Masculine Materialien wie rauhes Aquarell-Papier, Kork und Metall tun ihr übriges.
Ideas behind the card:
I wanted a German Sentiment on this card and so I played a little bit around...
Kuh (german word for cow) Kuhl → Kuul Cool. First I wrote the English cool with a light gray marker and then I adhered the black lines, the c turned out to a k and the o's got "u-shaped horns".
To make the male cow special I embellished the layer like a victory-rosette and adhered the stars.
Masculine materials like rough watercolor-paper, cork and metal do their job.
