Dust Off Those Brayers!

This week the challenge for us Chicks on the Farm is to use a Brayer (these are on sale through Aug. 7th)


I chose to do a refection card.

After inking up the moose image, from All Things Fall, I rolled my brayer over it to pick up the image. Then I positioned the brayer where I wanted the feet of the moose to start and rolled the image onto the paper. I inked up the moose again and stamped the main image.


Masking the moose, I stamped the Trees Backgrounder then, flipping my cardstock 180, lightly stamped the trees again for a reflection.
Using a large sticky note, I sponged off the edge for the water and the background.
Tall Weeds was stamped along the bottom before applying Ranger Glossy Accents.



Be sure to see what the other girls did too and have a look at what Julia has to say about Brayers. Dust off yours and have some fun!

Wow! Dawn, this is amazingly beautiful! I had no idea you could make a reflection with the brayer. I'm going to have to try that when I have a moment to stamp! Beautiful card!
