Brayered for the Boys!

Hello Everyone

This final brayered sample for March was my husband's favourite - hence the title! It would make a good man-card as approved by DH. LOL He said he loved the orange colour - so I didn't spoil it for him by telling him it was Peach Pizzaz not orange! :)

So to create this card I brayered with all the neutral colours first and then finished with the Peach over the after removing the mask.

I stamped the Lovely as a Tree image in Early Espresso and then brayered over the bottom with Early Espresso again. The Peach card was stamped with the Sandy Speckles wheel in Crumb Cake and I added a strip of Designer paper from Woodland Walk.


I hope you have enjoyed my selection of brayered cards - I must say they were fun to make and my brayer will be making a more regular appearance on my craft desk from now on.
