Rise and Shine Seascape

I am all over-excited! Hubby is taking me to the NEC on Saturday and I've never been before. It looks a fab show and hopefully I'll get to meet lots of my crafty friends (that's the best bit). It's going to be a long day but I'm sure it will be worth it - only two more sleeps to wait!

The Rise and Shine Set for Lesson 23 of In The Classroom With Barbara Gray is great fun. You get 5 different toppers for the weather vane so it's versatile too; I think they will be really useful for men's cards.

I chose to use the galleon so I thought it would be appropriate to do a seascape behind it. I used a mixture of my brayer and Ink Dusters to do this.

The ripples on the sea are created by rolling my brayer over some scrunched up paper before applying it to the scene. Once I'd done this I masked off the sea before creating the rising sun and the sky using Mountain Rose and Eggplant Adirondack ink. Then, when I had the basics done, I removed the masks and applied some Mountain Rose over the sea with a brush to create the sun's reflection. 

The roof and land are created by masking off an area and sponging on black Archival ink. The stamping is also done with this.

To finish it off I cut a scrolly frame (bought from the Silhouette Store) with my Cameo.
