Brayering Scenes ...

I've been playing with a fabulous brayer technique by Sandy Hulsart, a friend of mine. She has two great blogs that's well worth a visit. Creative Moments with Sandy, Scenes by Sandy

The first card is Sandy's technique using Stampscapes stamps and a sentiment stamp from Close to my Heart.

The second and third cards uses the same technique with a twist. I first stamped the main image with the new Versamark Dazzle "Frost" ink pad, then heat set it. I followed that with Sandy's brayering style using Stampscapes stamps and a sentiment stamp from Hero Arts. The Versamark ink acts as a "resist" and creates a glowing effect.

It's a fun and easy idea for great backgrounds as well.

Latest Bead Update: My first jewelry party is scheduled for August 2nd and I've been working my butt off making beads and creating jewelry. I've made earrings, necklaces and bracelets in preparation. I learned how to do chain maille, which is easier than it looks. Here's a necklace using a chain maille flower with one of my beads.

This weekend, my daughter, Lee is coming home from Cincinnati and we're headed to Albany for a Green Day concert! I'm a "roadie mom"! Have a great week :)


  1. Wow, Darsie, you did me proud. I love the color combo's you chose for your brayering, the resist card is stunning. And your necklace is fabulous, I sure wish you lived closer so we could "play" together. That necklace would be perfect for the Renaissance Festival up here in the Fall. Have fun at the concert with your daughter.

  2. Darsie, they are all beautiful. I hope your party goes well.

  3. I love the purple and white scene. Your necklace is beautiful! Good luck with your party.
