CCDesigns Funny Bunny
Just a quick note because my sister pointed it out. The bottom image is not a card, it is just a sample of how my brayered/sponged background ended up! She wasn't sure what it was so I thought I would clarify!
Tonight was brutal. I was trying my utmost to achieve the Brayer effects that Zindorf on Splitcoast achieves. In particular I was using this card as my inspiration for today's card. I went through tons of paper and ink. Threw out umpteen attempts. Almost gave up and finally hit on my own way to achieve her effects. I brayered the lightest color then sponged on the other colors and blended it in. I just couldn't figure out how she achieved that blended look without the straight lines that the brayer gives. I tried moving the brayer up and down to no avail. So anyways I used one of my varied attempts to make today's card.
stamps: CCdesigns bunny and sentiment, SU Oh So Lovely
ink: Stewart Superior Burnt Umber, SU Pomegranate, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Stamper Select White, Old olive, Whisper White, Confetti Cream
Other: Prismacolor and Faber and Castel color Pencils, Twinkling H2O's, White gel Pen, Nestabilities rectangle plain and scalloped, Brayer, sponges, May Art Ribbon, Jessie James glitter dots, Stickles in Cinnamon and Diamond, Faber and Castel Pitt pen in Sepia.
Colored image first, and then cut out with nestability. Adhered to scalloped layer. Brayered and sponged rainbow layer. Everything else is self explanatory. Have a great night and I hope to post tomorrow, just not sure because I have Stamper's Club Friday which I am preparing for.
