Card for a Young Man

A birthday card for my nephew, and a great opportunity to practice my brayering.

I followed the tutorial from Michelle Zindorf, but changed up the colors to match the ink pads I own.

A brayering class is coming soon - I promise! I went back and labeled some older posts with "Brayer", as I think there will start to be a trend here. I took a couple photos in different lighting so you could see the different colors.

Stamps: Extreme Skateboard, Sanded BG; Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black; Accessories: Brads, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Brayer, Sponge, Coluzzle.

**Update: Brayering Basics class scheduled for September 16th. Check out Meetup for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by!

These are great! I really need to practice my brayering. I usually just use my brayer to ink up my large stamps...

Genious to use the brads as wheels and the brayering is fantastic!
