Click here to see the mug from the LAMA e-store that inspired me.
I started with Whisper White cardstock and Barely Banana ink. I then layered on Yo-Yo yellow and Apricot Appeal. I stamped my butterfly image three times with Versamark and Chocolate Chip and heat embossed. I then took my fleur de lis stamp and colored it with SU markers and stamped using the huff technique. I stamped the little scroll in Apricot Appeal. I wanted the edge to have a little more contrast, so I brayered a small amount of Ruby Red on the edge.
There are definitely things that I would change the next time around (although I'm forbidden from pointing out flaws on this blog :), but skills build upon themselves and with each practice, I will see more and more improvement.
If you are interested in taking a brayer class from Michelle or want to view her free online tutorials, please see my sidebar for blogs I follow, Michelle Zindorf. Also, check out the fun challenges at Splitcoast. It's a great way to spark your creativity. Here's the link to the Inspiration challenge.
Til next time,
