How fun…a triple challenge at The Friday Mashup #102 using the sketch, butterflies, and a brayer! I have only brayered one other time about five years ago, and I failed miserably so I just stuck to sponging. But, I was determined to learn this brayering technique. After watching some tutorials, I learned to a few things:
- Don’t load your brayer going back and forth on the pad- do it in one swoop up and then down again with another swoop avoiding hitting the edge of the pad. This keeps the brayer uniformly inked without lines in it.
- If using a Kaleidacolor ink pad, keep the pads disconnected from each other and every couple of swoops move your brayer to the left or right to create a seamless blended area between colors.
As I searched my cache for a sentiment- I came across SU Spring Party (retired), and who would’ve guessed that I would get an email alert from Addicted to CAS # 9 – code word: SPRING!! My brayered tie dye effect reminded me of a party I had for my daughter about ten years ago, and that is just what the sentiment says.

Wow, Cindy your brayering looks amazing. Fabulous Spring card. Thank you for joining in at ATCAS.
Thanks, Sue. I was anxious to do brayering but I was happy when it turned out okay;)
Awesome job with your brayering! So pretty!
Thanks, Kristie. It’s a bright one- a little out of my usual color palette.
Wow, beautiful bright colors! Great job with the brayering!! Thanks so much for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
Thank you, Heidi. This was fun- doing a triple challenge with The Friday Mashup.
Great brayering here! I love the design and that sentiment is perfect! Thank you for joining us at ATCAS!
Thanks, Harriet. I wish the sentiment was a little thicker to stand out more in a photo but in person it does. I am ready for sping to come!
This came out great.. I’m so glad you gave it another shot! I really like how colorful the background is with the Butterflies. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup!
Thank You, Holly. I am glad I tried it again, too. It is tricky but I think practice helps;)
