The Brayering Blues

Evening Everyone,
I have been trying very hard to make sure that I finish off the bits and pieces that have been started in a class.
So far so good, so here is a card that uses up a stamped and brayered panel from my last class at Davina's on Saturday.
The stamp is by Stampendous, and the background has been created using several colours of Adirondack ink and a brayer. A small circular mask placed on the glossy card stock before the brayering is started gives the illusion of a sun or moon in the sky.
I have seen Barbara do this on the TV so many times that I thought that I might give it a go.
I also masked around the floral image before I brayered and then added a border with a fine black pen.
The background to the main card is once again made using the brayer and Adirondack dye based inks in 'Barbara style', only this time I have spritzed it with water and then covered it with cling film to give a wonderful frosted finish.
I have added a punched border, some ribbon, peel-off lines and a little bit of bling to the finished card.
I really am going through a blue phase aren't I.
I have noticed that most of my cards seem to be in the same colours just recently.
Still no Christmas cards yet this month, I shall have to get some made if I'm not going to fall behind again. Maybe at the weekend who knows.
Night night.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could brayer, but despite what Barb Grey says not all of us have the knack! The lovely delicate image is fabulous on the brayered background.
