Yesterday I held my monthly Saturday class. It’s always really lovely to have a little extra time and more day light to complete more challenging cards or try a new technique, todays class was using Serene Silhouettes and a brayer. I am definitely no expert with a brayer but wanted to have a go.. so here goes.
The first card was made with torn paper to mask the mountains/hills. I brayered this section with early espresso and then used the 2″ circle punch with a post it note to mask the sun, but now I look at it again in these colours I think it looks more like the moon? What do you think?
Once the post it note was in place I lightly brayered with tangelo twist and then added some real red over the top. The tree and sentiment (from Work of Art) have been stamped in Versamark and embossed in black.
Top tip.. Leave the back ground to dry a little or use your heat gun to dry off because even using the embossing buddy you can end up with the look of Mosquitos!!?….specs of black embossing powder in places you don’t want it.
This next card is half a sheet of A4 (14.8cm x 21cm) folded long way at 7.4cm. I masked across the card and brayered the lost lagoon first and then added the 1″ circle mask (using a post it note) and brayered daffodil delight with tangelo twist over the top.
And for the final card I cut some copy paper in the shape of hill and brayered the hills in pear pizzazz then covered the hills and added the 2-1/2″ circle punch and brayered in So Saffron first and then added the sun beams using the line of post it notes moving it around. I have also used a dauber to add some tangelo twist ink to the end of the sun. Again I have stamped in Versamark and embossed in black.
Hope you like them.
