Wildflowers at Sunset

Well, after a wonderfully fun Brayering 101 with my lovely Sunday ladies, they are keen to move on to the next step and try Brayering 201. So when I got home from work yesterday I just had to sit and play with my brayer. My first few attempts ended up in the bin but I finally went with the one below, even though my brayering isn't quite as even as I would like it.

Materials used:

  • stamps - Silhouette Sentiments (level 1 hostess)
  • card - whisper white, basic black, rich razzleberry
  • inks - regal rose, melon mambo, rich razzleberry, black StazOn
  • other - brayer, circle punch, sponge

However! Note to self: don't use cheap post it notes for masking! They don't punch very well (even using two sheets instead of just one) and they also leak the ink in a little. From now on I'll have to stick to the original, more expensive post its!

Thanks for stopping by.

Just lovely Kez! You can't always get rid of the lines, but I like to think they add atmosphere! And yes, you are right on with the Post-it-notes too, lol

Gorgeous Kerry. You are inspiring me to finally use my brayer for what I purchased it for (I don't think helping to cover school books in contact counts!!!). Thanks for the tip on post its as well.
