Something I am hearing about almost every day since the snow is shrinking back and the temperatures are getting milder is fly fishing. Yes, my hubby is nuts about tying flies and going fishing. So when I was trying to decide what I should do for our new Masculine Challenge, it was a no-brainer that I would haul out Stampin' Up!'s Best Catch stamp set as well as an old, retired favourite, In the Meadow.
I decided to keep it clean and simple. My base is the Heavy Whisper White cardstock and then a matte of Gray Granite. On another piece of Whisper White I stamped the mountain range from the In the Meadow set in the top third and then stamped the fisherman from the Best Catch set in the lower area. To the right of the fisherman, I stamped the sentiment which is from a lovely fishing stamp set by Inky Antics.
I used watercolours for this card. Several greens and then the Gray Granite ink colour the mountains and then a light wash of Balmy Blue defines the sky. I also added a light wash of Coastal Cabana for the lake.
It's simple but I know that the fisherman in my life will love it and I hope you do, too. Have fun checking out our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I hope you'll link your creation before the deadline on April 20th.
I've also entered my card in the following challenges:
