Here again at last with some brayering!

Well I said it would be a while and it has! Finding it hard to fit in crafting, but the mojo is slowly returning, the spending certainly is lol. A while ago I saw Barbara Grey using the Splodge Away mat on Create and Craft and she was raving about it. Well never being able to master brayering I thought if she says it's good it must be, so I ordered one (direct from the company I might add) Anyway when it arrived I was very sceptical it didn't look any different to the usual inky craft mat. I eventually got round to have a play and was amazed, I don't know what the secret to it is but it works! Having only had a quick play I decided to get inky last week, I watched a tutorial on You Tube and this is what I came up with, for a first attempt I was really pleased.
I improvised with distress inks, stamps used were Kanban dandelion, Stampscapes Oak branch and Clarity bird and scored the criss cross background using the Stampin Up diagonal plate. My next card was Hubby's Anniversary card which was on Thursday - 15 years, how time flies. I am over the moon with this card and cannot believe how well it came out, hope I can do it again! Having acquired the inky bug I've stocked up on Adirondack inks (lots more needed!) the gorgeous image is from Stampscapes UK
Just as well I was pleased with my card as Hubby didn't show much enthusiasm lol. Right as everyone's in bed I think it's time for a play, I've done enough browsing this weekend and spent a fortune on Memory Box dies. Have a good week and hope to see you soon x
