Cold & Windy Night


Good Morning, it's a cold morning too! Before I even got out of bed my joints said COLD! LOL.
I have been playing with my brayer this weekend, you know one of the things you've had forever, but never pull out and use anymore. I heard it crying in the drawer so thought I'd let her know I still loved her LOL. I started off stamping the swirl from Stamping Up's Baroque Motifs set with versa mark and embossed it with clear powder. Then I stamped 3 tress from Creative Vision the same way. After heat embossing them I colored them in using shimmering paints. Used a versa mark pen and went all over them, again clear embossing powder and cooked it. LOL. Then I used different blues from stamping up starting with the lightest and went all around the top of the trees. I placed a scrap piece of paper at the bottom so I would be sure and leave it white. After I got the sky about where I wanted I took and tore a little piece of paper and added a little blue to the snow to give it a draft look. Mounted it on black card stock then on to the base of the card. hope you like my card and thanks so much fro taking time to drop in for a look. I do appreciate it and your comments! yall come back now!!

This is gorgeous!!! I've only used a brayer once, but it's an awesome technique and you did a fantastic job here!

This is a piece of art, Olga. It should be in a frame on display for Christmas. Makes me want to buy a brayer and try. Love the blues and how you did the snow. I enlarged so I could see all the details. Just beautiful!

I've never used a brayer, and not quite sure if I want one if its going to start crying for not being used. My whole room should be in tears (LOL). Your card is stunning, colours are great, I love blue and greens.

Love the new little picture of Stella! This tree card is Wunderbar! I think that means wonderful in German. You are getting so fantastic with that she-brayer! I bought a stampamajig today. Maybe now my sayings will be straight! Have a fun day.
