Sail Away

This month I'm going to focus on techniques. This card was a swap from my upline's group stampy wackers. I picked this card because it's using the crayon resist and paper piecing as well as masking. The white sails are stamped and cut out to give them a stark white look. The moon is done with masking by punching out a circle with a post it note. The waves are accented with a crayon to give white caps to the waves. A brayer was used to make the background sky and water. Please note when doing a crayon resist you should use glossy cardstock. The baker's twine is the early espresso/white and gives your card a great finishing touch along with the so saffron card stock to add more texture.
