I love this stamp set called GET REEL. It is super for those masculine cards we need to make. I stamped my silhouette image and then sponged for water and sunrise. You know those fishermen love to get up early and out on the water. It makes an awesome card for Father's Day, birthday,  or just a general card...love that it has a father and son or grandson or maybe just a pal.

Recipe:
Ink: Memento Dandelion, Bahama Blue, Tangelo, Tuxedo Black
