The CCEE Stampers Are Rolling Along

Liz is the CCEE Stampers Challenge hostess for June.  This is her challenge......

 Summer seems to just be "rolling" right in. This week is going to be a technique challenge to use a brayer. You can google "stamping techniques using brayers" to get some fabulous ideas to try. If you don't have a brayer, try some other things that can roll on ink or paint! Be creative and have fun!

The only stamp I used this week is the sentiment which is from SU>  The background is layered.  The bottom layer was done with a brayer and a Big Juidy ink pad with graduated ink from the greens to the blues..  After brayering, I then placed a stencil over the base and sponged some 'mustard' ink over the stencil, creating the boxed areas.  I then used another stencil, placeing it in the upper left of the base and sponged Tuxedo Black ink to create the large bloom.  As a finishing detail I added paper piercing.  I must say that I just love the drama of this card.....may have to try that background again with other colors.  It is perfect for silhouettes, too.

Now be sure to visit the CCEE Blog to see the fabulous brayer techniques used by the rest of this fabulous team.

Wow, I love the vivid color you achieved with the brayer. And of course, your paper piercing is divine. Great design work too.

In reading your description, it seems that you put a lot of work into this card -- and so worth it. It's gorgeous. I love that background you've created.

It's hard to believe that only the sentiment is stamped! I love the graduation of colour in your background, and the added texture. That dramatic flower is very typical of you - and of course the piercing!!

looks like you and I were kind of on the same wave length for our cards this week ... we used similar colors for the brayering and both used a stencil over the top :) ... Love you card!
