Here's what I did to create my card, a bit offbeat perhaps but I had the idea of the large sun and worked out from there. I used gloss cardstock and created the sun by cutting a circle in a piece of A4 paper on the Cricut, placed it on the cardstock and brayered over the aperture with Stayzon sunflower and pumpkin. To create the mountains I tore a piece of copy paper and laid it on the cardstock (from the top downwards if that makes sense - so you are covering the top section of card) and brayerd first with hydrangea, moved the torn piece down and across to give a more random finish and brayered again with violet. Note: I find it best to roll the excess off the brayer on a piece of scrap paper first so the colour is softer - you can always go back and built it up if you want a more intense finish.
From there on I stamped birds, trees and leaves with Art Impression G3232/G2770/B3020/AA891/F2055. The castle is Artstamps F0047M and the fairy Rubberdubberdoo (no number afraid). I added stickles and glitter and punched and threaded three butterflies across the bottom.
gorgeous! Love your brayering techniques!
Love the card I can't believe when I did my brayering (mountains) I had the paper the wrong way it makes perfect sence the way you have explained (hopefully no one noticed) lol
Eagerly awaiting pt 2 of the GM Tutorial
I have so lost my mojo recently I sat at my table with time on my hands and couldn't do anything I had lost it complete blank I coloured in a stamped image and that was it oh well lets hope it comes bk soon I havent posted sice the 16th it's all too much, maybe I should do a challenge
Love Dawn xx
Oh I love it Brenda, all very technical to me though, love the idea of using a brayer but have never had a go. Need to get one first of course lol.
I've not tried using my Brayer with Stazon. Do you use a speedball? If so, how do you clean it?
For a second there I thought those were more Lavinia stamps...I have some very similar birds and leaves!
beautiful card, so much work but so worth it :)

This is beautiful! I love the contract of the black and white and the color.
This is stunning Brenda. The brayered sun and mountains look amazing. I really must ink up my brayer some day!
