Just a bit of brayering and inking


Good Monring peeps, I'm a bit overdue doing this post, the neck and shoulder are playing up again and crafting is so slow going as I have this silly collar which stops me looking down for long......but I guess that was their aim......are they spoilers or what, but I suppose it makes sense and hopefully it will help ease the pain.

So my shares are some I did last week for Sir Stampalot when I had a nice inky session. To achive the background colour of the one above I masked the fairy, dragonfly and moon......you all know there has to be a moon........and distressed with TH dusky concorde and broken china. Then overstamped with Penny Black 3381K Aspire and Hero Arts G4917 Dandelion using the same inks. The fair and and dragonfly were stamped again and decoupaged and splattering of glitter and liquid pearls. The little fleur de lis shapes are the end pieces of the hing in a TH die set........this is my latest 'favorite'.


My second share is simple brayering with the speedball using Adirondack dye inks watermelon and denim. The trees are Creative Expression and the fence and birds Art Impression.

  38. Just tremendous - difficult to choose out of these which I like most. The treescape is so effective & I love the way the path leads to the gap/gate in the fence. The placing of that dandelion clock in the moon's shape is beautiful, especially when framed by the grass stalks.
    Take care of the neck & shoulder & hope that the pain lessens speedily.

  42. Hi Brenda, I hope the collar is helping relieve the pain - it must be very frustrating for you, especially when you want to craft. Nevertheless, you manage to create the most wonderful cards - I love both these moonlight scenes, but of course the fairy one is my favourite - I have always had a thing about fairies!!
    Hugs, Sylvia xxx

  44. Wow, these are gorgeous cards! I've tried the brayering techniques before but never have this great of success. They are both great, but I'm really partial to the colors in the first one. Thanks for the inspiration!
