This past weekend, one of my good friends and downline, Debbie Keane, offered a class that was fabulous!! She went to a class offered by Michelle Zindorf last fall and I have been begging her ever since to do a class on it. Michelle is another Stampin Up demonstrator who is famous for her brayer technique classes. She travels all over the country teaching people these techniques. You can find the tutorials for these cards on Michelle's site here. Anyway, Debbie showed us how to make 3 gorgeous cards using Michelle's techniques.This first one uses the brayer for the background and torn paper to create those mountains. I just love it!
This vase card was done by brayering also. The vases are made from the modern label punch and the wide oval punch.
This card we did by using the direct to paper technique. You take your ink pad and just rub it directly onto the paper in a back and forth motion to create this look. Make sure you start with the lightest colors first. I am so bummed that this tree set is retired. I just love it! Maybe Stampin Up will bring it back one day.
