Bloggers Challenge "Thinking of You"
The theme for this weeks blogger challenge is Thinking of You. I made a card using the brayer in a Zindorf Spinoff called Scene Silhouette from the TJ newsletter.
I was able to 'play' with stamps at an open house on Thursday, and got to use this set from the SU catalog- I used a piece of paper ripped in half kind of at an angle.....brayered on color- in a Zindorfian manner......the first color I used is Pretty in Pink, then Rose Red. For the bottom, use the other half of the ripped paper and I beayered on mellow Moss and Old Olive. I added the sentiment in white for a stark difference, and added the corner and brads on the top for balance.
Su Paper is Rose Red, Black and Whisper White.
Stamp Set: Kind and Caring Thoughts
Tip: when brayering or sponging on color , you want the color to move on top of the paper so it blends well. Use only coated paper like SU Whisper White. Papers like Georgia Pacific and watercolor paper soak in the color, so you loose the smooth look - it will look blotchy (save the Georgia pacific for your Copic cards!).
Please check my post from yesterday- there is a link for a little girl that was very badly injured in an accident-her name is Paige- please join in and send her a card if you would!
