Brayering

 
Posted by Picasa


At last I have done some brayering and have had a modicum of success. I have lost count of the times I have tried brayering, going through a whole pack of silk board card. Doing a wheelie and flicking never seemed to work for me as it did Barbara ( queen of the brayer. Mine always looked so messy with lines! So I am pleased with my results for this card. I stamped my image on to glossy card and coloured the shepherds with Copics then embossed them and the star using an EP pen and clear powder.
I used speedball brayer and adirondack denim and latte inks. Being too impatient for my 'verse' stamp to arrive I printed it on to glossy card and cut out the window and layered the pieces together adding even more brayering - well I was on a roll now wasn't I? Lol!! Next I'm going to try hills and mountains with torn paper, so I may be gone sometime!
Thanks for stopping by
hugs Joy xx
