Getting to know my brayer – 101

I salivate over the lovely things pieces of work that Zindorf produces, and have resolved to definitely get to know my brayer.

I’ve set myself the target of doing 101 pieces of artwork with it – not every day, but at least once a week is the plan – and then hopefully by the end of that the brayer and I will be best buds.

So, this is number 101 on the countdown.

I’m quite pleased with it, but do still need to work on keeping the middle section a defined colour.

Heart Card

more makes from the Blush card kit, this time I used one of the chipboard pieces – the heart.

Finger-painted it with Jo Sonja’s Napthol Crimson, then stamped with the Anita’s Heart background stamp in Jet Black StazOn, added Versamark over the top and Chiaro Flo Clear Embossing Powder (SG-me!).

Also added some of the Hero Arts 3mm gems to the flower centres of the floral background paper.

Lefthand page of CJ

this is the left hand side from yesterday’s post, I might have to move the word “love” as I stupidly didn’t check where the holes for the posts went.

I need to re-scan the righthand page as I accidentally deleted it.

Stamps used: Paper Artsy Kids Plate, Anita’s Seahorse and Heart background.

Inks: Crystal Blush re-inker, Pearlescent Purple and Coffee Brilliance and Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks

I got a nice surprise this morning, Guy came back from Sevenoaks bearing a Pine Green Whispers Dye Ink for me.

Apart from that, I’ve been busily houseworking, and then took Lydia swimming this afternoon.

We’ve just had fish and chips for supper, and are about to settle down to a dose of Dr Who.
