This fantastic technique was demonstrated at the Heartfelt Event by one of our Paper Angels, Rebecca Ross. By wrapping rubber bands around a brayer and rolling it across the card, a unique background can be achieved.
We made four cards in Tuesday's class in four colour combinations using the Need for Speed set.
And for each one, the sentiment was punched out with a variety of punches.
* The blue card is made with Pool Party and Island Indigo inks. By rolling the brayer theough the lighter ink first, I didn't have to clean the brayer before rolling into the darker ink.
* Make sure your rubber bands are spread across the length of the brayer so that the end doesn't tilt onto your paper.
* Don't leave the rubber bands on your brayer when you are finished as they will leave a dent...hmmmm...another interesting effect?
