CBCC #34 Brayer Challenge



Good Morning Everyone!

Today's CBCC Challenge is to create a project using the brayer. I have had my brayer for over a year and yesterday was the first time that I have ever used it. It's a fun technique and really comes in handy when you want to ink up a large space.



To make my deep sea background, I used my brayer and applied several shades of blue to a 5X5 piece of paper. After my paper was completely inked, I let it dry and used my Nesties die to cut out the desired section. My Greeting Farm image was colored in with Copic Markers. I trimmed my image and placed her onto the brayered die cut at an angle. I left the sentiment area blank for the moment. The DP and ribbon are from my scrap supply. I used tiny flowers, pearls and MS lace punch to embellish my card.

For more inspiration, please stop by and see the other CBCC DT members creations.
