Had fun working with this stamp set.  Did a two tone here on this card....grey and white.  Four sections, two with shawdow fishermen and two with saying on Cuttlebug embossed cardstock. 

For this card I masked off a rectangle then sponged color in it.  Stamped the father and son fishing with black ink over the sponged section. Add a saying and you are done.  Don't forget to leave comment for your chance to win this stamp set.  Visit the rest of our design team to see more samples.
