Masculine Thanks

 The Clean and Simple challenge over at Splitcoaststampers today is about Masculine Thank you cards, which had me thinking straight away about this stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called Primitive Fish.

Masculine cards are not exactly my thing, especially a masculine thank you card. But that is why it is called a challenge. I find I really have to yank myself to the masculine side ... and still I fight it. But I do think the men I know would like this card.
 Distress Oxide in Blueprint Sketch is the ink for this card as I think that blue is so great with this stencil, and it also goes along with keeping the card CAS.

I first stencilled the fish on Neenah card stock using my Life Changing Brushes, then removed the stencil and  splattered with water. I then die cut the piece with Penny Black's Elegant Stitching as I liked the swirl in the die which reminds me of a wave.

Before attaching my panel to my card base I first ran it though my Gemini with the Penny Black Rows of Stitches die, which reminds me of rope knots. I then attached the panel and finished up by adding a touch of Wink of Stella to the eyes of the fish along with stamping the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black.
