Martha | Stenciling with a Brayer

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using the brayer technique with one of my favorites stencils, Arabesque Background - ST 301.S. This technique is one of the simplest and with it, you can obtain amazing looks and results. Take a look at my card:


 Create this is a very simple process:
  1. Cut the base of the card. I used Chocolate Chip card stock, the size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2".
  2. Cut a second layer using Very Vanilla card stock. Originally I cut this 5-1/2"x4-1/4" but then I resized to 4"x5-1/4"
  3. Secure the stencil Arabesque Background over the card stock using Rebecca Baer Masking Tape.
  4. Ink your brayer with Kaleidacolor Ink Tomato Vine and spray it with Ink Potion No. 9
  5. Roll the brayer over the stencil.
  6. Repeat the process until you feel that the color or free areas are covered.
  7. Remove the stencil and wash with warm water.
  8. Let the card stock dry.
  9. Cut the Delicate Flower Wreath die three or more times using different colors of coordinating card stock and paste it over the stenciled piece in different positions using glue dots.
  10. Stamp a message and paste over the stenciled layer.
  11. Paste the stenciled decorated layer over the card base.

I hope my project inspiring you and come back soon! Thanks so much for stopping by.
