Workshop - Brayer Roller & Clarity Stamps

Today may have been frosty outside, but it was lovely and warm at our workshops in Cheshire. Here are the crafters armed with their brayers (I provided plenty of wet wipes, kitchen roll and copier paper). My goodness, we went through alot of copier paper.

Our first card was an introduction to brayering for most of the crafters, we used Pesto and Wild Plum Adirondack ink pads, along with a masking technique to create the back ground on A6 Clarity card. Our chosen stamps for today were, the Medium Willow lady and Hanging Vine. As usual with Clarity stamps these stamp beautifully and produce stunning results.

Our second project was a homage to Barbara Gray, using Denim Adirondack ink pad and crumpled paper to produce the water. The reflection was created by inking the stamp up, transferring it onto the brayer and then rolling it onto the card.

We all had a brilliant time, came away full of enthusiasm and inky hands!
