Brayering Makes for Quick Cards

When I need a quick card, brayering is my new go-to technique. I haven't had a chance to play with the new stamp set Just Believe yet, so a perfect choice.

I masked the sun area and brayered the whole area with So Saffron. Next I brayered half way down from the top and 1/4 up from the bottom with Peach Parfait. And then I brayered 1/4 down from the top with Pumpkin Pie. To give the sun a slight amount of color, I removed the masked area and brayered again from the top with So Saffron. Brads, glue, and done!

The Brayering Basics class on September 16 is full. Please contact me if you are interested in the next one.

Stamps: Just Believe; Paper: Peach Parfait, Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, Black Stazon; Accessories: Brayer, Brads, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this card, so I gave it a try with my brayer, but I keep getting a line where the color changes, what's your trick for having it so blended??
