Inspired and a Case'd Tutorial

I was fortunate enough to attend two different stamp events this past weekend and made some beautiful projects taught by Maria and Susan. From Susan's technique class, she showed us what she called "Sweet Sunset". I had seen this before on Splitcoast and just recently a sample on Deb's blog. I decided to adapt Susan's version using TAC products and some of my Favorite sets! Here are the items in this picture you can also click the words below to buy them on-line. Now on to the Tutorial.....

Items used in these examples:

Palette Inks: Raw Sienna, Cognac, Burnt Umber, Noir

Also used: Brayer, Black card base, White 2 1/2 X 4, Bazzill Yellows 2 3/4 X 4 1/4,and Rust base Cardstocks. Brads, Ribbon Marvy Punch


First, using your brayer and Raw Sienna, Brayer your white using the Raw Sienna (Image below)

This next picture shows what it will look like after you've brayered....
Next, punch a small circle using your Marvy Xtra Jumbo Punch 1" to 1 1/2" and lay it on top of your first brayer. With the circle in place, brayer on top of that with Cognac. The next two pictures represent this....

When that is done, remove your circle punch then simply add dimension and effect by sponging or stippling with Burnt Umber.

Finally, you stamp your images with Noir and assemble your card! Here are three examples I had so much fun doing them. I have to Thank Sue for teaching me this. It looks so much more intimidating than it is!

Which is your favorite?

I hope you enjoy this quick tutorial, I love this!

These are stunning! Thanks for the tutorial too. I think I like the one with the elephants but I like elephants! I'm wondering if you used glossy card stock or regular?
