Thoughts & Prayers

I've had a few days off and used that time to make some sympathy cards! 

The first one I have to show you uses the Lovely as a Tree stamp set #128655 Wood and #127793 Clear.  This set is one of the most purchased and most used Stampin' Up! sells:)  

I used a brayer to achieve the shaded background.  
This is my first attempt at using a brayer, but I'm pretty OK with the way it turned out.

 A brayer is a rubber roller with a handle...kind of like a paint roller.
Brayer #102395  $12.50

Choose a couple of Classic Ink pads with colors that coordinate and can be used  to blend.  
For my card I chose Crushed Curry #131173 and Cajun Craze #126965.  
When Braying you always start with the light color and work into the darker.
My intention was that you would see more of the Crushed Curry at the base 
and behind the trees and then have the Cajun Craze blend up toward the sky.  
My Crushed Curry got lost under too much Cajun Craze:(

As I said, this is by first attempt at using a brayer.  
Even though this card didn't turn out as planned, I really do love it:) 

Give using a Brayer a shot!  Order yours today.
