Brayered Beach

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns

I’m doing my best to combine two Splitcoast challenges on this card: TLC378 (use a brayer) and the color challenge CC376 (pick some retiring colors). And I thought I’d use these Our Daily Bread designs images to make a Father’s Day card.

For the TLC (brayered paper), I used a brayer and a rainbow pad to do the background and sentiment strip. Before using the brayer, I put down some drywall mesh to get this cool grid pattern. The beach scene was stamped w/ the lapis ink onto vellum and I used markers on the backside for a little soft color. I used some trimmed off strips to make a little frame around the vellum.

For the CC, I used the pear pizzazz, concord crush and a teeny bit of the blushing bride (right at the horizon). I hope it ok that there are a couple of extra colors in the mix. My finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
