Brayered it!

Hello again, told you I'd be back tonight.

Well one of the things in my recent Stampin Up order was a brayer. I have been dying to have a go at this, there really is some awesome cards out there with sunsets and moonshine, so I just had to have a go at it. I did previously try it with Trish a while ago, but we decided we didn't have the right brayer, but now I have!

This is a quick card I made using a brayered background and a pretty 'grasses' stamp set that I purchased recently at the my local $2 store.

This is not bad for a nearly first attempt I thought, although am not entirely happty with the colours.  
I used Stampin Up inks - more mustard, cajun craze and bravo burgundy. There is also a bit of a line where there shouldn't be, but hey, you get that!

I have had another go since then and added in some cherry cobbler which really brightened it up. I will post that when I've made a card with it. (it's on my desk in Girl World at the mo, just as a background).

If you'd like to see what it should look like, check out this blog of Michelle Zindorf - she is the brayer queen! Amazing! I may have to do a couple of her workshops!

Ciao for now...

ps. sorry about the photo, I used gloss card a the light was reflecting on so I had to stand it up instead of laying it flat on white paper like I normaly do.
