While I was Blog Surfing the other day I came across the Inkspiration Colour Challenge. I quite liked the sound of the colours and thought (since I’m being a Brayer’er at the moment)….Mmmm – I could Brayer those. So away I went.
I actually made a couple of Cards. And I like them both although this is more the look I was going for.
And the thing that I found interesting about this was that by the time I did my Brayer background, stamping and 3D imagey thing – I decided that I did not want to add any embellishments. So there it is… Just Ink & Paper!!
If you’re wondering – here’s the other card I did.
So I was going for the 3D kind of look here too….but I did not really work. I did it on Glossy Card – and spritz my flower image with water before I stamped it so it would slide around a bit. But as I say – it didn’t work. Also….NOTE TO SELF – Don’t Brayer on Glossy card again!!

Yep. You’re definitely a brayer godess!! Love them both, but especially the first. 🙂
STUNNING!!!! Absolutely STUNNING!!!!! YOu’ve made that scary colour combo look absolutely AMAZING!!!!
You don’t need a sentiment on this card, it makes it’s own stunning statement!!! Love your 3D effect, amazing! Strangely enough, I brayer better on gloss, weird huh? ;P
Love your first card. When I had lessons many years ago on using the brayer we used gloss card first and I only use gloss card when I brayer!! The finish is always soft and smooth and if you do it right even.
Mmmmm – perhaps I need more practice then? I found it coloured quickly which I liked – but it took me ages to get it smooth and without lines – which I didn’t like. Will keep working on it.
Wow Chantell, this is really gorgeous! I admire people like you who can use the brayer effectively…no matter how many times I play with it I have to file my work in the bin!!! lol Both of these cards are amazing, I love them both.
love sally 🙂
Beautiful! Love what you’ve done with these colours, and I really like the ‘slidey’ effect of the image on your second card. Don’t give up on brayering on glossy card … I find it more forgiving than on matte card.
stunning, love the 3D effect on the first one
WOW!! I’m almost lost for words Chantell. What a gorgeous card andI just love this stamp set, one of my faves.
Have a great day
Absolutely beautiful work! Well done!
Wow your brayer backgrounds are great. These look so good well done!
I love how simple this is it totally doesn’t need any embellies!! It is sooo stunning just as it is!!! And the design is super wonderful!! LOVE IT!

I love this card. I am a new demonstrator. Can you tell me how to brayer like this please.
I’d like to give it a try.
