It has been a long time since I made a masculine card. This month Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed many fantastic stampsets which are perfect for that.

I used digi version (DIGI778) from Gone Fishing stamp set.  Image with two fisherman and sentiment are merged and printed out. I die cut it with largest die from Spellbinders Floral Ovals set. After I inked the background with Broken China Distress Ink I covered it with Versamark ink and Super Thick Clear Embossing Powder. Then powder was melted with heating tool I added another coat EP and melted it again. I used the scissors to cut off all the fancy edge to leave only the pierced oval. Fun thing about Super Thick Clear EP is that you can crack it. I did it with mine focal image. Then I rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the cracks.

To make the card background I used a kraft paper. I spritzed it with water and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Crushed Shells). Then I crinkled it. After the paper was dry I inked the crinkles with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Paper was die cutted it with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangle die. Then I placed it in to the Sizzix embossing folder (Lattice) and run it through the die cutting machine. I used more Vintage Photo Distress Ink to bring out the raised parts of the embossing. 

I added a narrow strip of white cardstock and a bit wider cardstock strip which was heat embossed with Blackened Bronze EP to add some more interest to the card background..

I also sprinkled Blackened Bronze EP to the kraft background and melted them with heat tool from underneath the paper. Some White Want 2 Scrap Sleek Strips Pearls was added to embellish the card.
