Masculine birthday

My husband's birthday is coming up, and I really struggle with coming up with a masculine card for him every year. He loves fishing, so I usually try to focus on some element of fishing, and this is what I came up with for this year.

The background has been sitting around for a while, so I am not exactly sure what it it is. It's glossy cardstock that I think was colored with watered-down reinker then splattered with either salt or some sort of spray cleaner (like Lysol) to create the waterspot pattern. It's very possible I tried with salt, didn't like the results and sprayed with cleaner.  Doesn't matter, I thought would make a pretty sunset.

The silhouette image is stamped with Memento black. Oddly enough, I didn't think that would work, so I first tried it with Versamark and black EP.  I was surprised this came out so much better.

The image is from Victorine Originals.

I am entering this card in the following challengs.
