Brayered Wild Flowers

Are you in need of more brayer tutorials?  Well, I have one for you, inspired by this orange pillow and a card found on Splitcoast Stampers by TexasGrammy.  Unfortunately, the link to her card cannot be seen unless you are a member of Splitcoast Stampers.  If you are a member, log in and look at TexasGrammy’s card.

Supplies:  Ink Pads (I used Distress pads in my tutorial), VersaMark, clear embossing powder, coloured embossing powder (I used Adirondack Terra Cotta), brayer, stamps (unmounted are from smARTworks and mounted are Stampin’ Up!)

Stamp out image onto cardstock with VersaMark.  Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat emboss.

On an angle, brayer colour onto cardstock, going half way up.

On an angle, brayer second colour from the top, downwards towards the coloured area.  Leave a little bit of white space between the two colours.

Using the colour that was brayered on, sponge more colour, starting on the outside edge, working towards the center.

Using a brighter colour (darker colour if it is a darker colour such as the green used in this card), sponge on more colour, starting on the outside working in towards the center.

Repeat for the green area.

Using a darker colour of green, stamp over top of the embossed areas.

With a coordinating colour (or colour the same as the upper top colour you used), heat emboss more flowers.

Finished card.

New tutorials every Tuesday

This is just gorgeous! What a fun technique! Makes me long for spring so much! But since we are under a pile of snow guessing that will not happen for a long while! Got more snow yesterday!

Beth –

I love the warm vibrancy of this card. You’ve done such a wonderful job creating this, it just draws you into it. I really love the look of brayering but I have to admit I am lousy at it. I really need to spend some time practicing. Thank you for sharing this with us.
