Layered Brayer Tutorial

June layered brayer card

The layered brayer technique is one that I learned at the Ottawa Stampin’ Girls Convention – it was one that my upline Sarah Safar demonstrated.  This is pretty close to the card that she created although I tweaked a few things. Since I haven’t seen an online tutorial on this technique I decided to create one.

Step 1:  
Run an embossing buddy over the surface of the glossy white cardstock. Use a bold image stamp and VersaMark ink to stamp on the glossy white CS . Sprinkle on clear embossing powder and heat using the heat tool.

Step 2:
Brayer the lightest color (Apricot Appeal) all over the glossy white cardstock.  The clear embossed images will resist the ink.

Step 3:
Place a few small post-it notes over the suface of the card front, then brayer over it with the Pumpkin Pie ink pad. The areas that are masked with the post-it notes will remain the Apricot Appeal color.

Step 4:
Place a larger post it note over the smaller post it notes, then brayer Ruby Red ink over it.  The area under the large post it note will remain the color of the Pumpkin Pie.

Step 5:
Remove the post it notes then wipe off the excesss ink on the embossed images with a tissue. Your card front is now finished!
