Reflection At The Lake & Nature's Beauty



Well since I had all the stuff out to brayer and my 15 year old soon to be 16 year old son commented on how much he loves my brayered cards when he saw the one I did for my BIL. I did 2 more... Now to decide which one to give him.

I used the mirror image stamp for the reflection of the wolf in the water and then the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the wolf placed just right over the reflection. For the wolf that is on the land part of the card, I first stamped it in my versa mark pad and then in Basic Black Ink. I then put clear embossing powder over it and heat embossed so that when i brayered on the sky and mountains it did not pick up any of the ink...To get the shape of the mountains, I ripped a post it, I placed one half on the top and the other half on the bottom for the reflection. I sponged on first Certainly Celery and then Old Olive. As for the tree, I stamped on the reflection again using the mirror image stamp and filled in the area between the upright tree and the reflection tree with a basic black marker




For this card I used first stamped on the tree again using the versa mark pad and then stamped it in Timber Brown Staz on. I put on clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I then brayered half the top half with Soft Sky, Blue Bayho, and sponged on Not Quite Navy. For the land, I brayered first with certainly celery and then sponged on Old Olive. I then took another post it note to make the mountains, and the horizon. Last but not least, I stamped on the buck.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you like it

Love these, I like both, but I think the coyote is my favorite. I keep looking at that stamp set and think I won't use it but it is perfect for guy cards, isn't it...

Very tough choice but I think your reflection with the wolf is superb! It looks so "real" to me. I really like both cards. I like, like, like your brayer cards-you have got to quit your day job and become a full time artist!
