Happy for Pals Paper Arts...

A sketchy technique (for me!)...

Hello all!  Happy Friday and welcome to a new challenge with The Friday Mashup!

The challenge is:

  • Create a project using the "Sketch". 
  • Create a project with “the bouncing brayer technique". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a card using the “sketch and the bouncing brayer technique”

The bouncing brayer technique is quite fun – you can visit the tutorial for more information – IF you do the bouncing brayer!

I was so busy remembering to use the brayer, I forgot all about the technique!  Do you ever do that?  So this card is based on the sketch with a great brayer plaid background!

I used coastal cabana and Bermuda bay as my main colors with a bit of crumbcake thrown in for good measure.  I used the brayer to make the plaid on PTI white.  I ran pieces of the Bermuda bay and coastal cabana thru the PTI picnic plaid impression plate so that I could cut all my pieces out of the embossed paper with the exception of the crumbcake.

I put everything together and added a piece of twine, linen thread, and rhinestones.  I added the sentiment (in the wrong place!) and I was done.  Call me a rebel (or someone who can’t follow directions!) with this project!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I am off for the weekend but will be back on Monday with some new projects!  Happy weekend all!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white.  SU! coastal cabana, Bermuda bay and crumbcake.  Inks:  SU! coastal cabana, Bermuda bay and memento black.  Stamps/dies:  PTI simple stars.  RC wonky double scallop border.  PTI picnic plaid impression plate and PTI sketchy stars.  Other:  brayer, linen thread, Bermuda bay twine, rhinestones.

Love the plaid!! I still consider this 'bouncing' ;) You know... maybe you're not bouncing it repeatedly, but you're still bouncing it! haha. Fun card and great colours.
