Class Project #2

Michelle Zindorf has inspired me to start using my brayer that has been collecting dust for a while now. She has a great blog with the most amazing tutorials that you'll ever see. Go check it out when you have a chance.

This is a card that I came up with for my June class that I'll be teaching next weekend. I figured that we had to do at least ONE Father's Day project right? We'll be using a set called "On The Fly" by Stampin Up. I designed the background with the fisherman all by myself with my brayer! Here's how I did it.

This is the first step - THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP! Your image will get ruined if you don't do it in this order.
Step 1
First, I stamped my image on Whisper White and colored it in with my SU markers. Then I colored over the entire image with my clear Sakura Glaze pen.

Step 2

Okay, now we're ready to brayer! I took a picture of each step, but you'll be doing all of the steps on one piece of paper.

First, I brayered Bashful Blue (for the water) on the bottom half of the cardstock and then Not Quite Navy (for the sky) on the top half. I left a white space in the middle, about an inch, because I wanted to put mountains there.

Next, I took a post-it note and tore two edges of it. I put one on top of the white and one of the bottom of the white. Then I brayered Sahara Sand in the middle.

For the last part, I left the post-it notes in place and sponged Chocolate Chip along the top and Wild Wasabi along the bottom and up onto the trees. Voila!

I hope this inspires you to whip out that brayer that's hiding in your drawer!
