Brayer Creative

Hello Again!

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:

Sorry about the long shadows on the picture, but I had to be quick, work is calling in a few minutes and then we’re off to Wales again for the weekend.

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!!

Happy Crafting!!!

🙂
