Brayering.............again !

Good Monring peeps, a really quick share of some brayering I did the other day.

No sooner had I mentioned toadstools to my friend Ruth of A Passion for Stamps, than the image was making it's way to my computer. I did a couple with them last week, but wanted to try one with a fairy........the two sort of go together in my fantasy world.

So I brayered a background with Adirondack dye inks........the colours do look a bit intense in the picture, but are not that bad in the flesh. I stamped and heat embossed a fairy, cut her out and glittered her wings then mounted her in the sky. I printed out the toadstools three times, coloured with Aquamrkers and placed behind a fence cut out with a TH die and embossed with some yummy new Frantage embossing powder from Stampandous............it's a sort of a cross between normal powder and UTEE.


My second share is using the same toadstools, but printed out larger, again coloured with Aquamarkers, some Bo Bunny DP, a TH hinge and a Marianne die rose. The leaves are also Ruth's images, coloured with the same medium and covered with Glossy Accents.

Thanks for dropping by and hope you have a good day.

Glad you liked the toadstools - and I love what you've created with them! Your fantasy card with the brayering is so imaginative and I see you've managed to incorporate two of my other images (Beech nut and Maple Leaf) into the 2nd one!! Thanks! Ruth x

What a lovely set of cards and great brayering. Its been ages since I got my brayer out. Must play tomorrow! My blog/little craft business is called Toadstool Curio as I love toadstools. I love the image you have used. Where is it from?

preciosaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssss

How utterly different those toadstools look in your two cards. The dimension of that embossing powder on the fencing in the first card is incredible & i love the ruggedness of it against the smooth black silhoutte of your fairy. The brayered hills & sky look very effective. With the second it feels far more non fantasy world - it could be a woodland scenario with that bracket reminding me of a gate or iron railings. all very suggestive of the rugged outside of the outdoors.
