Morning all a bit late posting this morning, yesterday Lin and I attended a fabulous course in Maidstone given by the awesome LisaB from Lisa.B Designs, we were learning to use a brayer and working with fabulous Lavina Stamps. I found the brayer pretty hard to get the hang of but Lin just sailed away with it, I think I am a bit heavy handed with the brayer and couldn’t quite get the flicking motion, but now I have seen it done I am determined to practise, will let you see the results.
Here is the card I made at the class, I would love to say I brayed the background, but unfortunately I didn’t it was a one of a number of card blanks that was on sale at the Mobile Shop in the Hall. I did stamp it though I used Milled Lavender and Black Archival Ink to stamp the flowers, Bats and Castle, then added Gold stickles to the Flowers, the middle was cut with nesties and matted and 3d back on to the card blank, I think it looks great.
This is my first attempt at brayering, not very good not even enough pressure and as I was a bag of nerves I managed to drop the brayer onto the corner of the practise piece, but I do intend practising later today, Thanks Lisa I had a brilliant afternoon and came home really fired up.
All the imtems used on the card and practise piece can be bought from
