One For The Boys - Masculine Card

Today is Day seven of the 30 day color challenge at The Daily Marker blog.   For my card today, I decided to go monochromatic, using grays.  Since I need some masculine cards, I decided to make one today....
 The stamps are Art Impressions, an oldie but goodie (clear stamp masculine set).  I inked the fish and sign with hickory smoke and black soot distress inks onto various shades of gray card stock.  I also stamped a word background onto a panel of card stock, and cut it and another panel into banners.  I embossed the vertical gray strip, added it to a light gray card, then added the banners.  I used foam tape to give the fish dimension, and the same with the Celebrate Life sign.  I sponged some ink along the edges.

There are a couple of fishermen in my life, so this card will be used very shortly.  

I am adding this to these other challenges:

Art Impressions - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - One For The Boys
Little Red Wagon - It's Summertime

Thanks for visiting today.  I'll be back tomorrow with day eight!  
Hope you are staying cool!
