For my dads birthday this year I thought I would experiment in the Brayered Effect. My dads birthday is on Halloween so what fun it always is in making his card. Elisabeth showed me how much fun this technique is and I just had to give it a shot for my dad of course:The recipe for this card was quite simple really. I used the Spectrum ink pad that is now retired (how sad) and a brayer. I used Basic Black for the card base and Old Olive for the layer under the stamped. I brayed on Whisper White and also used the Frightful Fence jumbo wheel. Also on the card is Eat Cake. As you can see very hard (not). Once the brayered technique is mastered anything is possible =)
On the last project this weekend, I sampled my Thanksgiving cards using the Brayered Effect. This one was more complicated being I needed to use like multiple ink pads. I'm amazed it did not turn out to look like a blob. The recipe for this was: So Saffron for the card base. Chocolate Chip for the layer under the Whisper White. I brayed on Whisper White with So Saffron to begin. I then cut a post it note using the 1 3/8" circle punch and placed that on the Saffron ink layer. I brayered over that with Pumpkin Pie. I used a sponge to add Rose Red (or Ruby Red) around the edges. Also Close to Cocoa on top of that with a sponge. The stamp sets are: Inspired by Nature (which I'm gonna love) and Thoroughly Thankful. This is beautiful I think and elegant in its own way!!!
