Alice birthday card (wed stamper stars)


I havent done stamping for awhile so thought I would combine it with some painterly effects I have recently learnt on the willowing course. I just love brayering white paint over stuff now and found this corrugated cardboard took the paint nicely. The background has lots of paint, watercolour crayons and stamps all blended in. This lovely alice stamp is from scrollswork. The theme over at wed stamper is stars so be sure to check out the other entries too.

Like you, I am now addicted to the brayer and layering - it's great - it even works on material - love your Alice Card

Love the paint effect on the corrugated card and the Alice stamp is sweet! When I have done the brayering on my willowing project it doesnt come out very well, I think I need a softer brayer, what sort do you use?

Nothing like a bit of paint over corrugated cardboard. Love it. I also love your monster, he/she's fab! Good idea to have something around that eats those negative vibes ;)

What a lovely card Lorraine. The brayering looks so good on the corrugated card! And yes, brayering totally addictive lol.

A brilliant card, Lorraine! The white paint/corrugated cardboard is a real winner.
