Bonsai Moon

Good morning all,

I am early with today's post. This is another brayer creation. To get this wonderful effect is so surprisingly easy!

Load your brayer with one of the colours, mist and brayer immediately onto the white card. Repeat the procedure with the second colour! Voilà! As you can see on the image layer really well, you can create washes of colour, or more splotty effects as in the layered background. It will all depend on how much water you mist and how quickly you brayer!

I did try all sorts of embellishments, but quickly came to the conclusion that I wanted to focus on the backgound. Therefore, I have ended up with a very uncluttered card.

I am quite enarmoured with this background. What do you think?

Materials
Stamps: Rubber Poet Don Blanching DB - 12 - F
Inks: Adirondack Denim and Lettuce
Cardstock: Bazzill and Generic White
Other: Brayer, Water Mister

What a fun technique. My poor brayer just sits in waiting *LOL*

I like the blue and green together a lot! It really makes the main image just pop. If I get a brayer someday, I will have to try this technique. And I think it looks great without any added embellishments.

I have never tried this technique with the brayer before. It looks great and sounds fairly easy to do. I will definitely have to give it a go. Your final card looks really good - that image goes well with the background.
