Capture the Wave… Brayer and Sponging Technique Card

You’ve been patiently waiting… and I’ve been playing with my brayer and sponges… finally!  This card kind of happened as a creative break from the technique and birthday cards I needed to create and assemble last Monday.. really speedy quick.  My mind was a blur, and I had no idea what I was going to create for the swaps, so I began to allow myself some creative ‘play' time.  Here’s a sneak peek of my brayer and sponging technique card…  I’m so I was so very excited by the final result, I have to egg you along for a bit!
Can’t you see the water and waves crashing?  I had to add some dazzling diamonds because in Florida, the waves sparkle in the sunlight… Isn’t it fun?
Are you ready to see the finished card? 
<…drum roll> 
Here you go!

Another view:

Of course, I’ll add a greeting or sentiment before shipping this card out to a worthy recipient… but for the time being, I think I’ll just sit back and enjoy the sound of crashing waves along the beach.
Have a really great day!
Hugs…
Pin It!

Whoa! What an awesome card. Wish I lived near you in Florida so I could take brayering classes from you to learn how you did this.

Wow Sharon, this is awesome! You did an amazing job. I think you should be the worthy recipient--I don't think I would be able to part with it.

CRYSTAL said...

Oh my word! This is an insanely-awesome card!!! WOW. Would love to know how you did it! :) tfs

Tracy said...

What I wouldn't give to learn how to make that incredible ocean scene! We need to bribe you into a paid video tutorial, perhaps?!!

What an awesome card Sharon, I love it! I would love to learn how to create an effect like that... I don't have a brayer, so I think its time I did! I have seen many demo's use this technique but have never thought of attempting to try it until now. This card would be perfect for my son who turns 20 in May. (Good heavens there's a reality check!) Maybe I might be able to pick up some pointers and have a go at making something in this way. Think I'd better do lots of researching for some pointers first lol!
Thanks for sharing
