A Simple Brayering Project

During our Girl's weekend I did a little tutorial on brayering for my friends. This was a very simple project that was perfect for a newbie to this technique... everyone enjoyed learning a bit about brayering and turning this into great greeting cards. What's so cool is that each card was just a bit different and unique.

I used several shades (light, medium and dark) of blue to create the sky.. and several shades of green to create the ground, and used a mask to create some hills and the moon. The image was stamped with versamark and black memento and embossed with clear powder.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due.....When I first started stamping I was told that CASE meant "Copy and Steal Everything"... I thought that was pretty odd and selfish, and quickly learned through my blogging friends and forums that this is not the real, true meaning and intent of this acronym.

Since CASE is really about 'sharing' in our community, I want you to know that this tip (stamp first in Versamark, then in any ink and heat emboss with clear powder) was shared by Michelle Zindorf while attending her wonderful brayering classes last July. I want to set the record straight for my readers and friends that Michelle is the one who deserves all the credit for this great tip!!

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be safe in all you do!

I like this and thanks for sharing the tip. I need to get my brayer out more often and practice. I am great at creating muddy brayered backgrounds!
