Brayering Class

As I promised on Sunday here are photos of some of the finished cards we made in the Brayering Class on Saturday.  The first one uses the resist technique where a versamark ink image is stamped onto white paper and then heat embossed with  clear embossing powder. 

We then brayered the top of the card in Bashful Blue ink and the bottom in Old Olive.  The rest of the shrubbery was created using a variety of images from the Autumn Days stamp set in Old Olive and Garden Green.

To create the next card we used different methods of masking to create the sun and the hills with some shadowing using sponge daubers.  The main brayering was done with So Saffron and the shadowing with Pumkin Pie.

The plants were stamped with Pumpkin Pie, but this time we used Pocket Silhouettes.  Again we masked off some of the hills to give an illusion of depth


I just had to do this card again - and the ladies loved this!  Unfortunatly we ran out of time to finish off the cards, but hopefully they will be able to practice and finish them off.  We did do samples using various other techniques and when I get the chance I will make those up to show more ideas for using the brayer.

If you are interested in attending a class on brayering, please email me - if I can get enough people together I will hold the class again soon.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog!
