Sail Away Moonlighting Technique

Items from the new mini-catalog are now available!!!  One of my favorite stamps from this mini is Sail Away.  As soon as I saw this set, I knew I wanted to use the moonlighting technique.  I also used my brayer for the faux tearing technique too!

I love the blue colors – Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  I also used the white baker's twine on this card.

Vintage Vogue – Faux Tearing

Vintage Vogue is a new Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I adore!  It has an innate shabby chic feel.  At my Technique Tuesday class this week, I demonstrated the faux tearing technique.  VERY EASY and a wonderful way to add dimension and texture without adding cardstock.  I’ll be using this technique often! 

Create a large piece with a torn edge – this is your mask for your noncolored piece.  Place the cardstock underneath it – you may want to secure it with removable adhesive.  Using a sponge brayer or a sponge, cover the cardstock with a coordinating ink.  If you plan on stamping on the torn piece, do it now.  You can use stamps and ink or a wheel like I did here.  I like the contrast of the Night of Navy ink on the Old Olive-colored torn edge.  Remove the mask.  Finish your card!

Don’t you love the faux button too?

The color is somehow washed out a bit in the picture – I used Night of Navy ink and card stock, Mellow Moss card stock and ribbon, and Old Olive ink (for brayering the torn section).
