I must admit I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I finish a masculine card. Those aren't easy so I love it when it all comes together:
I made this card by sponging a small rectangle sheet of white card stock by masking clouds and the water. Using Distress Inks in varying shades of blue, I made my background for the fishing rod from the Camping Accessories die set. A bit of white gelly pen and some metallic blue Sakura pen adds just the amount of detail for the water. My Molotov Chrome pen makes it easy to add silver to the reel and hook.
Using a sheet of Through the Lens Wood series by Elizabeth Craft Designs, I added a wood grain background with just the right contrast so that my Summer die cut pops up. A bit of twine for added texture and this masculine card is done!
