Brayer Technique

Welcome to day two of my blog.

Tuesdays are my busiest day of the week, first I have to take Caitlyn to gym, then straight after we go to swimming lessons. Caitlyn is loving gym we only started this term and I cant believe I haven’t taken her before now. And just to top off the day we now have Bradley’s 15 month plunket check up this afternoon.

Today’s card I have done Brayering, I love this technique, as long as you use glossy paper the ink blends really well without all the wasted ink. I have used the 1 ¾ punch to cut out a circle using sticky notes and placed it on the card first. I then used tempting turquoise then went over it in not quite navy. Across the bottom I have used old olive, I then ran the tempting turquoise over again to blend in the two different colours. Then you can remove the sticky note to reveal the white underneath. Using black staz on I stamped the image onto the card. To finish the card off I lined the glossy paper with a piece of blue card stock and placed them both on a black base. I always finish my card with a stamp on the inside of the card and also the same image on the envelope.

    I’m impressed you still found time to stamp, with that busy schedule! I’m too scared to ink up my brayer – but you make it look easy! 🙂
