Well I had no internet service at home last night so I couldn't post to my blog - bummer. I have so many things to show you that I have been working on.
Today is "What is it?" Wednesday where I will be showing you a neat project or technique done with someting you may not be very familiar with. For today's "What is it?" Wednesday, I am showcasing the Brayer.
Here is a really neat sample of a masculine card using the Brayer to create the sunset background. This particular sample is from a Masculine Card Swap that I had with my downline at our meeting Monday night. This is Carol's wonderful swap card and a perfect one to showcase this week's featured product, the Brayer.
To create this sunset background or any multi-colored background on your project, you start off by inking up your brayer in a light colored ink and brayering it across your cardstock until you get the desired coverage.
Next, you would ink up the brayer in a slightly darker color ink. Move the brayer down a little on your cardstock so that you leave some of the original lighter colored ink exposed. Brayer the ink over the cardstock for the second layer of color.
The final step is to ink up your brayer in your darker ink, move it down a bit on your cardstock again and brayer the remaining cardstock to create the third and final layer of color on your project. This technique can also be done to create a rainbow effect as well.
I would love to hear what types of things you use your brayer for. Why don't you leave a comment on my blog so we can share the uses with everyone?
