Default Brayered Sunny Sky by berlycece ~ Sat. March 19 ~ 2 pm EST - MAR16VSNG

Challenge Title: Brayered Sunny Sky
Hostess: Kim, aka berlycece
Keyword: MAR16VSNG
Date: Saturday March 19, 2 pm EST

When I think of this VSN theme, "Here Comes the Sun," I think of a beautiful sunrise! (That and the classic Beatles tune!) Depending on the time of year and the number of clouds on a particular day, an early morning sky can be laced with deep blues, golds, oranges, pinks, purples, even grays. My avatar is a photo my husband took a couple of years ago in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg Tennessee during our Thanksgiving vacation. I could stare at sunrises and sunsets all day if they lasted that long!

Getting different shades in the sky on a card can be done various ways, but for this challenge, I am asking you to pull out your BRAYER. If you don't have one, you might want to ask another crafting friend or you could use sponges. If this is a completely new technique, be not afraid! Forums at Splitcoaststampers from the Brayer Queen herself, Michelle Zindorf.

You can use similar tones, or add as much variety as you like. I like to look at an actual photo of the sky to give me inspiration. Just have FUN!!

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, March 27.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the Here Comes The Sun VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Here Comes The Sun - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your card is seen.

I can hardly wait to see what you create!

I love this challenge! But evidently, my brayer is bad and it left lines.
Here is mine: Forums at Splitcoaststampers

Thank you for the inspiration! I will be watching for your card.

Here is my LATE card. Late because this is my OWN challenge! LOL

Tip for the future: When hosting VSN, be sure to d a sample for your own challenge before other challenges, just in case you get sick the week of VSN.

Leaving lines is pretty common. I thought I had a solution figured out, but apparently not! Then I decided to intentionally add lines, like sunbeams. Oops.

Love this technique so much I had to do two! Thanks Kim, here are my cards

Pigment ink leaves less lines. It's so wet you have time to go over it repeatedly and blend in.

Here's my Sunny Sky Morning Flowers card. I'd had my sponge brayer forever and never used it. Today was the day!

Brayered Sunny Sky? Yep, my card fits although it might not seem like it at first glance. Thanks for a fun challenge!
