Sunset Swirls

Hi stampers.  Welcome to my weekly tutorial where today I will showcase brayer work and masking.  It is lots of fun, so let’s get started.

Supplies:  ink, swirl stamp, sponge, stamp, Post-it Notes

More ink

Punch a hole in the Post-it Note.  Be sure to punch it down low so that the sticky part will stick nicely.  Sponge on your sun colour.

Create a mask with a Post-it Note by hole punching near the top so the sticky will stick nicely over the sun.  Brayer on the colour of your sky as shown here.

Sponge a darker colour of blue around the upper corners and along the top.

Create a background by using colours that coordinate in both the foreground and background.

Stamp swirls on the background.

Using a scrap from the brayer work, stamp a sentiment onto the background and adhere to your image.

I hope you enjoyed this weekly installment.  If you have any tutorial requests, please let me know.

This is just awesome Beth. I love this card. I really have to get a go and try this brayerwork, as it looks absolutely stunning. But I admit, I haven´t dared yet, but I also miss some tools to do it, so I guess, it´ll have to wait a littl more, but I will sometime soon, that´s for sure. IIt´s so gorgeous. Thanks for another great tutorial hun., and have a great day.
big warm hugs Maryann

Great sample. Could you provide more tutorials like this that don’t require the use of a cricut or die cutting machine, which I don’t own? Thanks Beth.
