Brayered Night Sky

Hi girls …

I’m not sure why I am here … because I should really be getting ready to go to Leonie’s tomorrow. But … here I am … and I had better make this quick!!! 😀 This is a card sample that I did for my August Brayering class (Twilight Stamp Club class). The girls didn’t actually create this one … but I did a few samples for them to see different ways of brayering. I have found a few new uses for my brayer lately … adding ink to background stamps – gives a really even coverage of ink to the rubber! And … brayering ink onto the inside of embossing folders gives a fab effect. (I have a card using this technique to show you … will do that one on Monday!)

I hope you can see the pretty Dazzling Diamonds sparkle on the moon & the stars! I have also “ghosted” the trees – double stamping without re-inking the image to give a shadow effect. All the details for creating this card … including technique step-by-step … are included on my card recipe at the end of this post. You can click on this recipe to enlarge & print if you need to! 😀 I do need to give credit to Dany Piepgrass for the original idea for this card. I have tweaked it a little … but Dany’s card certainly was the inspiration!

Don’t forget to visit tomorrow to start your journey on the ESAD-SU! Christmas Blog Hop! You will know you have finished the hop when you arrive back at my blog … after travelling around 15 gorgeous blogs!  Note: Links to the blog hop won’t open until 10 am Sydney time – Sat 23rd. Well … gotta fly … lots to do! Stampin’ Hugs xxaxx






  1. This is gorgeous Andrea – I feel like pulling out a picnic rug and staring at the stars! I MUST try brayering!!!! I must find time to try new things – think I should make this my new mantra – LOL
    Andrea adds: Giggle, Debbie! My girls love to do that … just go out and lie on the grass and look at the stars. We are very blessed living just a little out of town … to get beautiful night skies … not toooooo washed out from city lights! Thanks for sharing that image! 😀 Hugs xxaxx
