Saw that Fashionable Stamping challenge that has just started is Gone Fishing, first thought was to make a masculine card but then ,looking at the DT samples , one of them had used an Artistic Outpost stamp and it reminded I have the Keeper set of stamps that I have never used. Stamped the girl onto an oxide ink background, added a bit more vegetation and a couple of fish, added to another inky background piece made using the same colours and with a bit if meshy stuff ( I really don't know what this stuff is, there was a big roll of it in an old first aid box but its great for adding to cards !)
