Colour Creations - Smoky Slate

Hello Everyone, how are we all doing this week?
We have a lovely colour for everyone this week called Smoky Slate, what a lovely warm gray colour this is. I have chosen to make a male card this week as I think this Colour and the stamp set I have chosen go together well.

I started off this a Smoky Slate card base and added a Coastal Cabana square topped with whisper White. I used my Stamparatus  to stamp my hats and fish hooks from the Best Catch Bundle and coloured them in using the marker pens. I stamped them and the Fish and Baskets using the Smoky Slate ink I then cut out the Fish and Baskets before mounting them onto the front of the card. I also stamped the card base using the crackle paint stamp and Smoky Slate ink. I do love the effect from this stamp. I sponged the front and the insert of the card with Smoky Slate ink to give the look of being a bit dirty.  I also cutout some of the small fishes using the dies. 

I stamped the Fisherman and sentiment and then grouped the cutout fish together and mounted this onto another Coastal Cabana layer before gluing to the inside of the card. I'm so glad that this set is carrying over from the Occasions Catalogue as I really love making men's cards.
