Paper Players Challenge #25

When I saw the sketch from Paper Players this week, I knew I wanted to play along, and I knew what I wanted to do ~ so out with my Never Been Used Brayer ~ I decided it was time! I really need to keep working on this Technique. I think it's one of those that take time to master. Michelle Zindorf  is amazing ~ how does she do it ~ so here's my first attempt ~ I'm not really pleased with the brayering (is that a word?) on this card, but ~ once perfected!!!!....I'll keep trying!

After I finished the card, I realized that I wasn't as close to the sketch as I thought ~ sorry girls ~ I hope that's okay?.....

And now, if you'll allow me ~ I'd love to throw in a picture of our youngest grandson ~ he's three week's old tomorrow and just so sweet and a wonderful new blessing in our family!

Thank you so much for stopping by today ~ enjoy your day!

  1. Oh, this is lovely....I think your brayering is FINE! I just did a brayered card with my club girls but never posted it because it was a case from Michelle...she is good, isn't she? I think she's had lots of practice!! You can do it if you practice like she does! And your little grandson is just as cute as can be! A lot to be thankful for !!!

  2. Beautiful card and I think your brayering is lovely! I like your out-of-the-box approach to the sketch too. So glad you could join us this week at The Paper Players!
