Dasher - With Brayer
I spotted a beautiful card over on SCS today and had to have a go at creating it myself! The original (created by Kari Metzger) was created using sponging, but as I'm practising my brayering this month I decided to change the technique :o)
I love how the above card came out. The white ring around the moon really makes it stand out. I used Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Pacific Point and a little Night of Navy to brayer the sky. For the moon itself, I used So Saffron and just a touch of Cajun Craze - and I sponged this on.
I changed the colour scheme for my second attempt. This time the entire card is brayered and I used So Saffron, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler. I added the moon mask after I had brayered the More Mustard. This time there is no ring around the moon BUT I've managed to get a fuzzy edge to it, which I quite like. It makes it look like there is a bit of a haze around :o)
Both cards are really simple to create. I'm by no means a brayer expert! But with just a little practice you can get a great look with limited skills :o)
You can find Dasher (£7.95) on page 113 of the Idea Book & Catalogue. The Brayer (£9.95) can be found on page 103.
