My Try AT What I Learned From Michelle

This card is one of the cards that I have created using a brayer and the technique that I learned from Michelle. I really love the look that you can get from this technique. This reminds me of a California sunset, we lived in the San Francisco Bay area for 18 yrs and loved every minute of it.

This card is on Stampin Up card stock. The flourish stamps are Martha Stewart, the Palm tree is from Innovative Stamp Creations. the elements and inks are from Stampin up.

This card is using the same technique, this one reminds me of the area where my mothers family lived in Idaho not far from Sun Valley Lodge. In fact my grandfather and his oldest kids (which is my mother and his son) fell and got the logs out of this area for the Lodge at Sun Valley. They cut the trees with what is called a two man saw and dragged them out with horses. They also got a lot of the logs out for Ernest Hemingway's home in Sun Valley. My grandparents, my mother and her brother have passed but we have a strong heritage.

This card is on Stampin Up cardstock, used there inks and brads. The stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creation. Ribbon is from Big Lots and peeloffs from the UK. I really enjoyed making these cards. I have a long way to go before I am any where near as good as Michelle but it sure is fun practicing. I am taking her advanced class the end of August. I can hardly wait.

I hope everyone is having a great day

These are both just gorgeous. I'd love to perfect the brayering technique too. Yours is just beautiful. Have a blessed day...
