Challenging the Brayer Queen!

Good Day Stampers!

I am heading to the Falls to help set up the trailer for the summer.   Although I was gone today and will be gone again tomorrow,  I have been busy making cards for my "You've Got Male!" class this Monday. 

The title of this post is Challenging the Brayer Queen (aka - the Blog Hogger, my sister, Colleen)  She has been doing some amazing work with her brayer and has challenged me to "Brayer Up!"  So I headed to Michelle Zindorf's website, the home of the original Brayer Queen.  This lady is amazing with a Brayer.  Her cards are literally works of art. 

I found a tutorial using "Open Sea" and with a class coming up thought I would give it a try.  Of course in order to teach it you have to learn it right?  So after only two tries I finally got something I am quite proud of.  Have a look -

I used Basic Black for my card base and some wonderful dsp from the This and That bundle.  I started out with a 3" x 3" piece of Whisper white card stock.  After brayering and stamping and some direct to paper this is what I have.  I followed Michelle's tutorial to the letter or a close as I could.  You can find the tutorial here!
Her tutorial will give you an idea of what I did way better than I can explain it to you.  So, Colleen,  I have taken up the challenge and am currently working on another one to post soon.  Let's see if I can keep up with the Blog Hogger!
This is a quick post as I have some things to take care of before tomorrow.  Laundry and a meal plan for the weekend.  It's calling for rain but no snow!  We can but hope!
Sailing away Hugs!
