Peggy gave us some bold colors(all from the SU grouping of "Brights") for today's challenge. The colors are:
Dessert: Enamel Dots. I used 2 small black ones by the sentiment.
When I first saw these colors, I imagined "sunset" with these brights. So I decided that's the way I would go. Masculine cards are not ones that I enjoy making all that much, so I thought that I would use these colors for a Father's Day card(this finishes my needs for this year's holiday.) : ) I used a brayer to create a quick and easy background for the sailing ship using the three inks of Peggy's colors. White acrylic paint was lightly brushed onto the sails to lighten them.

Fantastic card and great image for these colors. The distressed edges and the anchor add so much to the look of your card and the white in the sails really makes them stand out. What a perfect fathers day card. Right into my favs.

Not only is your use of the colors brilliant but your brayering is outstanding! What a perfect job you did blending these into a perfect sunset on the sea! I LOVE the idea of brightening the sails with white! Another favorite, Sallie!

Like your stamped design and the brayered colors look terrific. Using white paint to lighten the sails is a fab idea and it looks good. Love the distressed edges, at first glance I thought they were emb in gold. AWESOME card, Sallie! :)
