This week they Queen is YellowRose46, Ina! Ina has a lovely gallery and is extremelytalented when it comes to brayering! I saw several gorgeous brayered cards and ended up selecting this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=132381
I finally purchased a brayer. I have seen so many wonderful cards with the technique and was so excited to try it. OOPS!!! I think I need more practice!!! This looks like I misted it!?! (Sigh)
Ina's card has a perfrectly blended orange sky with lovely little flowers silhouetted.
I wanted to try an evening sky that was red, white and blue. My red ink had too much pink undertones so I used a yellow with it. I am guessing I did not use enough ink. Then I did the top with the blue ink.
The wheat was heat embossed with black embossing powder. I used the black mat and popped it up on dimensionals, the same as Ina. I decided on a different sentiment too.
Even though my technique is lacking, I am happy with this card. It seems a little patriotic with the red, white and blue and the grain. : )
Ina, please do more of your wonderful brayering!!! It was a pleasure to go thru your gallery!!!

LOL at your brayering explanation. Yes! It does look patriotic!! I was instantly reminded of the line from America the Beautiful - "amber waves of grain." :) Beautiful card!!
