Just Add Water


At our recent Convention I was seriously inspired by Paula Dobson and her amazing technique of the Bouncing Brayer which you can see here on her Blog - Stampinantics and I have been looking for a project to use this on that is easy enough for me to do!!  Yesterday at our group meeting, one of my friends, Sonja showed me a card with this little bird and posts on it that totally inspired me!!   So..... here it is - my attempt at the Bouncing Brayer Technique - and it is PERFECT for the challenge a Just Add Ink this week which is to Just Add Water - click here and see some other amazing variations on this theme!!

I have used the two step bird punch, the woodgrain embossing folder, the greeting comes from Sweetly Framed hostess stamp set, and the colours are:  Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry for the sun on the water.  My final embellishment is the button made with the Simply Pressed Clay!!


  1. Oh Julia this is FABULOUS! What a life-like scene you've created and your bouncing brayer is perfect! LOVE this card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink! ps. didn't get to meet you at convention :( maybe next year!
