Brayering – impressive but easy!

5 Comments

Hi guys!

Tonight is stamp club … our second last for this session … and I had a request from my sis for a lesson on brayering. When we only do 2 samples … it is hard to pick which “type” of brayering to focus on … but I think I have picked a couple of different looks to demo tonight. This is not one of them … but is a sample I made as another example of brayering to show the girls!

The images on this card have been embossed with white embossing powder … and then the brayering was done over the top. Aren’t the soft colours lovely! A little bit of bling … and easy peasy! (Yes … Lynda! Embossing IS easy! … I am sure you can master it! 🙂 )

Skye finishes her trial HSC exams this morning (11am) … and we are off to have lunch somewhere as a reward for all her hard work over the last few weeks. Her finals begin early October. Poor baby had her music exam yesterday … which included a performance of two pieces. She has been working so hard on these songs with her singing teacher … and at home. She was so excited with how they were sounding. But … she has been sick all week with the flu & her asthma is playing up! Not the best week to get the flu … during her exams … and she was very “husky” yesterday going off to her music exam. She was so disappointed that she couldn’t perform to the best of her ability … and couldn’t do the job she knew she was capable of. We are just hoping that the “markers” will take that into account. Surely … they would have to???

  1. Geez Andrea….way to support the reader’s egos by putting up an embossed card!!!! LOL!!!
    It does look stunning…as I am sure all embossing does when it is done right (PS considering that lesson offer too!!) The brayering really picks up the baubles so sweetly too. I love this card Andrea….elegant and delicate. Well done. ooxx
    Andrea adds: Ooops! Sorry hun! But … I’m sure you are perfectly capable … you just need a little confidence! 😀 I was serious about the lesson offer! Hugs xxx

  2. This is just stunning! I love it! I haven’t done enough brayering as I’d like!

    Sorry I haven’t been around much. Still packing…. and l think I have one week left before hubby goes! And leaves me to pack everything… well really sort for the removalists, but I still have to go through it all.

    I will try very hard to enter your 100000 hit challenge, if time permits.

    Cheers

    Andrea adds: I totally understand, hunny … moving is supposed to as stressful as a death in the family … so no need to apologise! Just take some time to breathe! And … I would love to have an entry from you … but please don’t add to the pressure! Hugs xxaxx
