March Classes - the technique project

Hello Everyone

Each month one of the three projects I teach at my classes features a stamping technique. This month we are going to play with the brayer and the lovely Glossy White Cardstock that has appeared in the UK catalogue this year. I am really pleased to be able to teach this technique, because it works SO much better on the glossy cardstock.

I like to give some choice, so this month the ladies can choose from the two different designs, although the colour scheme will be the same. Here is the first option...


To make this card I brayered the card with several inks from Sahara Sand to Not Quite Navy to create the gradient. As my upline Amanda says, "don't be afraid of the Brayer", just ink it up will and go for it and you will be delighted with the results you can achieve.

The first choice uses the stamp set Hopeful Thoughts, the second option was made with Just Believe. Here is the panel I made as the example.




Sometimes I make a further example to show the ladies some other ideas of what they can create using the technique I am teaching and this month I did two. Here is a sneak peak - pop back here in a couple of days to see them in full.
