I love my Brayer

I know I have been showing you all a lot of different brayer cards lately, but I really do love using my brayer. Whenever I need to make a quick card I grab my brayer. This is very similar to one we did for my brayer basics class. I had to make a card very last minute (I almost forgot a birthday and needed to mail it asap) so I grabbed my brayer and whipped this card up. It took me literally less than 8 minutes to make the whole card and get it signed and in the mail. This uses the gradation and masking techniques.


Stamps: Nature Silhouettes, Occasional Quotes (level 3 hostess set), Sanded
Inks: Not quite Navy, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Basic Black, Night of Navy
Misc: 1" Circle Punch, Signo White Gel Pen

I love your brayer too, mine - I'm not so fond of. Your card is beautiful.

Thanks for sharing,
Kim

Absolutely beautiful. What is the gradation technique? I love this silouette.

This is great, are you going to teach us how to do gradation (whatever that is)?

I've made this card and its so much fun! I love this silhouette set for it too! The wolf in the set looks like he's howling at the moon when you use him. Awesome job!
