Masculine Zindorf Type Card

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and are enjoying a few days off.  It got cold here last night and I am refusing to go out of the house.  Not ready for winter!

For my Zindorf Technique workshop last month I wanted to teach the ladies how to brayer a body of water and sponge an island in the water.  I incorporated that in a masculine card.  My husband loves to fish and this retired Close to My Heart Stamp set was perfect for this card. 

Had a hard time signing this card with all of the embossed ferns at the bottom.  With the Zindorf technique, you must sign the card because it is a work of art!  LOL
