Watercooler Wednesday, Challenge #54

I am happy to be working with the wonderful designers over at Watercooler Wednesday. I am looking forward to getting to know these talented designers and playing around with their challenges. Thanks for having me!

The challenge this week is from Marsha, the Bouncing Brayer Technique –

WWC54

Well, when is the last time you used your brayer? Sadly, I could not even find my brayer…..but, I still managed to create a wonderful cards with a brayered effect –

Cool, isn’t it? I bet you’re wondering how I did it to?

Here’s what I did. I started with a card front, 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Grabbed some scratch paper, my Stampin’ Pierce Mat, two yellow ink pads and Clear Block I.

I inked up the edge of the block. On one edge, So Saffron at the top, Hello Honey along the bottom. I then proceeded to tap the block around the card keeping the end in the same place. It sort of has a burst out look to it.

I did this just randomly. Re-inking ever so often. (Yes, I rotated my card stock too. I did that frequently.)

You can see the ink on the edge here.

I just kept going around and filling in. No rhyme, reason, or pattern.

Sometimes I did a bit of rolling. Sometimes a little dragging with the inked up block edge. When I was happy with the look. I stopped.

I trimmed it down and inked all the way around the edge of the panel. I added a sentiment and finished the card off with some Gold Foil corners and sequins.

Isn’t it pretty? Doesn’t this card just shine and brighten your day?

Hop on over and join us in the challenge – it’s fun!

I’d love to read what you think about my Bouncing Brayer Block Technique!

Happy Stampin’
