Going to Aintree last week, inspired me to try using the brayer a bit more often. In my last post you saw the background I created by simply applying ink with a brayer to a sizzix texture plate, placing a piece of card on top plus the ‘sandwich’ to go with it and then putting it through my Cuttlebug. For today’s card I’ve taken this a step further by blending the edges in, using a brayer. It is faster and less messy on your fingers than using sponges. See for yourself:
If you wonder how to make one of these, the class in june will be on using the brayer to create backgrounds, blending etc.
For the card I used:
white card blank and card stock, ribbon, glitter glue and perls from your local craft shop; island indigo and pool Party ink & cardstock, Island i digo Stamp’n’Write Marker, Butterfly punch, Flight of the Buttterfly and Just Believe stampsets from Stampin’UP!; texture plate from Sizzzix; Sentiment ‘with love’ from Craftwork Cards
for the tag I used: Everything Eleanor stamp set, Island Indigo and Pool Party inks from Stampin’UP!; white card stock and ribbon from your local craft shop; sentiment stamp from Dimension Stamps
Hope you like it. Have a great Bank Holiday Weekend!!
