AECP - Irresistible Inking Technique: Brayer & Inkpads

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

In this lesson, it was all about using inks in different ways beside just for stamping. I have also learned using a simple brayer to create custom coordinated background colors with the stamp image.

For this project , I was inspired by Sara Naumann (who is an amazing teacher in the lesson) to create this card. I started with a ink pad, applied the ink on the mat sheet, sprayed some water directly into the ink, then I took a brayer running through the watering ink a couples of times in order to make sure the entire brayer inks up, and then I rolled onto a A2 size white card stock panel, back and forth, side to side a few times, then set it aside to dry.

While the panel was drying, I used a different color ink pad, and used scuffling technique on the square white card stock. I also used the same ink pad adding some definitions on all four sides of the panel.

Afterward, I stamped the flower and the sentiment directly onto the square panel. I was worried the image wouldn’t show on the panel, but it turned out totally fine. I adhered the square piece on a darker blue square card stock, then foam mounted it on the watercolor panel. I also wrapped around the panel couple times and tied up a bow with twine on the bottom of the panel. Lastly, I adhered the panel on a A2 size card base. The card was finished.

To be honors, I really stepped out my comfort zone to use the color combinations for this card. I almost tossed it away about half way through. Thank god, I kept going and didn’t waste my times and materials. What a great experiment! I really like it how it turned out at the end. Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day :)
