Monday Montage 214 - Rugged Icon Dies

Welcome to another Blog Tour with the Monday Montage Crew!  Make sure you make it all the way through by hitting the Next button - you won't want to miss a thing!!!

Masculine cards can be a bit of a challenge for me.  I always consult my "Crush" about my projects and ask for his opinion.  When it comes to making cards for the XY gene he always reminds me "no froo froo".  Stampin' UP has come out with an amazing set of dies that are kind of hidden in the catalog.  When I found them I was smitten.  Partly because I love being in the out of doors outdoors and fishing with my crush.  Tie in a beard and a guitar...I'm just sayin.....

 I knew I wanted to make a card with a fly rod and mountain scene.  I think in hind sight I would have switched my blues.  Balmy in the sky and pacific for the stream.  I really like how the card turned out.  I frayed the ends of the soft suede ribbon and the sentiment was an easy pick from the great DSP set He's the Man.  I know I will be using the paper and included die cuts again.  The fish is lightly shaded with poppy parade and wink of stella to give it a rainbow trout effect.
