Woodware: Challenged by Francoisé

Françoise Read loves to play with Sakura pens, and who can blame her? There is a HUGE selection of them available through Woodware. She shared with me a tip about using the Gelly Roll Glaze pens to "watercolor" your images. Just add some of the glaze color, and use a wet paintbrush or Waterbrush to move the ink for shading and dimension. For my card, I did a bit of that with various shades of the Glaze and the Star Pens, to feature the new Dreamweaver Sailing Ship stencil design. I extended out the wave pattern a ways as well. To add some clouds, I used a sponge dauber with some gray ink and created clouds by means of the Dreamweaver Picasso tool. The torn focal panel was matted in red cardstock, and adhered to a textured blue card. More of the blue provided nice contrast for the sailors knot tied in Hemp Cord and wrapped around it. A banner/flag was added with the sentiment from the Perfectly Clear Stampendous Birthday Assortment set.

I'm anxious to see how the rest of the team plays with Françoise challenge...aren't you? Let's check it out on the Woodware blog.

A brilliant card and love the way you have combined the pens with a Dreamweaver stencil!
