Morning crafters !

Just before my holiday, I held an all-day class with one of my lovely crafting ladies Judy, and a few of her crafting friends.   I was aware I had a few Brayering 'virgins' and some not really knowing how to use properly. 

I started off getting everyone using any colour ink pad and practising on a piece of copy paper, progressing onto a piece of Whisper White card, learning how to use Brayer and also how different card stock will absorb in different ways.  By the end of the morning, they had all progressed on to making this lovely card. 

Here we used a basic Brayering technique, starting with Wisteria Wonder ink pad and adding Elegant Eggplant. Brayering requires a little bit of practice to fade down ink through the card without streaky lines but ladies mastered successfully and went home with beautifully made cards. 

The mountains were made from torn scrap paper. Varying the depth of colour here, gives an impression of some of the mountains being further away.  

Stamp set used was Serene Silhouettes, drawing birds in freehand with Basic Black marker. 

Pop back tomorrow for another of our Brayering projects. 

Happy craftin'
