Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone it's Christine here with a brayered background out of which I created 3 cards.
I took an 8.5X11 sheet of card stock and used a brayer technique by Leandra Franich.

Salut tout le monde c'est Christine ici avec un fond brayered à partir duquel j'ai créé 3 cartes. J'ai pris une feuille de papier cartonné 8,5 x 11 et utilisé une technique de brayer par Leandra Franich.

Once if finished laying down the colours with the brayer I  used acrylic paints and the Sunflower stencil to create the main focus and did some random stamping over the card.

I cut the card into a 5.5X8.5 and two 5.5X4.25  to use as card fronts.
These are the final cards.

Une fois que j'ai fini de fixer les couleurs avec le brayer, j'ai utilisé des peintures acryliques et le pochoir de tournesol pour créer le focus principal et j'ai étampé la carte au hasard. J'ai coupé la carte en un 5.5X8.5 et deux 5.5X4.25 pour l'utiliser comme fronts de carte.
Ce sont les dernières cartes.

 My sunflower is waiting for the right person and the right sentiment.

Mon tournesol attend la bonne personne et le bon texte.

I used Posca acrylic paint pens to colour in my flower.

J'ai utilisé le crayon acrylique Posca pour mettre la fleur en couleur.

My butterflies were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using Aged Aqua embossing enamel.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how one background can create 3 cards.

Les papillons sont étampés avec du Versamark et embossés avec du "Aged Aqua embossing enamel".
J'espère que vous avez apprécié le fait qu'avec un arrière-plan il est possible de faire 3 cartes.

Beautiful cards Christine, those stamps are just gorgeous but the way you have designed and created is spectacular. The Zen flower and stencils are awesome.xx

Fabulous cards!! Love the idea of getting three cards out of the work of creating the background. My favourite is the one with the butterflies - beautiful embossing powder on the flock of butterflies and a great sentiment.

Mac Mable said...

Wow what stunning creations and love how you brayered the background and then made the three projects. Tons of inspiration.....Thank you x.

Bonnie said...

Beautiful cards using this technique! So many possibilities!

Your brayered background is gorgeous. So perfect for any style of card. Great work Christine! And I love the three finished cards. Each one is so unique and beautiful.

Stunning Christine and also useful to create something large that you can cut down for smaller projects. Vicky x

Beautiful brayered background. That technique looks cool and easy enough. Love your second floral card... colouring with your white pen really makes it pop.

All three are gorgeous, Christine! I love the brayered background with random stamping! It has depth and so much interest.

I adore your brayered background Christine and such pretty colours and love the different images you have used over the top, including the pretty stencilled flower over some wonderful stencilling and stamping in the background, and then the beautiful daisies using posca acrylic pens which look great, and then the bevy of beautiful heat embossed butterflies very vintage looking using the Aged Aqua embossing enamel, really different. x
