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.

  5. 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

  29. 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.
