Thinking Tree

 I use my sponge brayer whenever I want to create a soft, blended background for my images. It does take longer to add the color, but it adds it slowly. This gives you more time to evaluate your panel. I blended three colors onto this panel. What do you think?

   Rooted in Nature

   Not Quite Navy A-2
   Only Orange 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Not Quite Navy
   Only Orange
   YoYo Yellow
   Archival Basic Black

   Sponge Brayer


First, I applied the Not Quite Navy ink using my sponge brayer. 

I then added the Only Orange to the middle of the panel. 

I turned my panel and added the YoYo Yellow on the opposite side. 

Lastly, I stamped my image and my sentiment. It is best to use a Stamparatus or MISTI. This is the only way to get a darker and sharper image. I stamped mine only once, and I think it is a bit pale.

  1. Super soft blended background for that wonderful tree image Sally. Wonderful card to send to someone to let them know you are thinking about them.
