Sail Away Choppy Seas

Good Afternoon Everybody.  Almost the weekend!  

My card today was one that we made at my card class last night.  I'm so excited to show you this because we used the Brayer.  I had so much fun preparing for the class and experimenting different techniques with the Brayer.  So here's how we made it -

First of all we distressed a piece of Night of Navy card stock by using the edge of a nail file top and bottom and then tearing the edges.  This is so much fun and allows a lot of freedom to just,  well, get messy with it.  

The Sailing ship was stamped onto a post it note and the sails cut out.  Then stamped again onto Whisper White card in Night of Navy.  The sails were masked with the cut out sails.

Then we all had a practice with the Brayer.  The idea for this card was to chop the colour into the white piece using random small movements.  It didn't matter if there were lines etc. as it was supposed to quite random, hence the choppy feel.  We used Bashful Blue and then added a little Baja Breeze.

Some twine was attached with a tag stamped from the Tiny Tags set and punched out with the Jewellery Tag punch. 

Finally the card was assembled onto a Crumb Cake card stock.

Thanks for having a look and I'll share our other Brayer card soon.
