- glossy cardstock; in this case I started the same size as my card knowing I would trim it down. SU! sells glossy cardstock; Ranger does as well.
- a brayer; don't be concerned by the staining on my brayer! I also made a purple card...see that tutorial later this week....the staining does not come off at all!
- Something to cover your workspace as you will roll off the cardstock
- Colors! I suggest you always start with your lightest color. In this card, I start with bashful blue, then add baja breeze and end with going gray
- For snow, you will need to cover the bottom of your cardstock so you keep it white. You can use post it notes, or a piece of paper. I used a long piece of scrap white paper, and using Mono Glue made my own temporary post it note. I tore the edge to give an irregular edge to the snow.
I repeated the last step with the Baja Breeze. I rolled the brayer on the inkpad, took off the hard edge of color then rolled. This time, however, I did not roll all the way down to the paper, but about half way down the card. This allows the Bashful Blue to still show through just above the horizon of snow. Also, when you are rolling, feel feel to twist and move the roller around. This helps the blending.
Just remember to be sure your brayer is clean before you add the last color.
Lastly, I rolled the brayer in Going Gray, took off the hard edge of ink and rolled at the very top of the cardstock. Again, this is all about the look you are trying to achieve; I only rolled the gray on the top third or so, twisting it as I rolled. Keep rolling!!! The more you roll, the more it blends!!!
ETA: February 26: I reloaded the pictures...not sure if they were showing up for you !
