Brayer Cards

I have been reading blogs of how to's to use a brayer. I have had a brayer for a couple of years now and never really used it. So I made two cards. The first one I brayered CTMH Sunny yellow all over the card. I punched a circle out of a post it. I used the circle as a mask and brayered CTMH Honey over the middle and top of card. Then I brayered CTMH Holiday red over the top of the card and brayered CTMH Sweet Leaf along the bottom of the card. I took the mask off and I stamped grass in Sweet Leaf.
The next card I stamped a circle in CTMH Sunny Yellow on white A2 card. Then I covered the sun with the mask I had created earlier. I brayered over the whole card with CTHM Crystal Blue. There was some of the previous colors on there and it made an almost impressionist look.  I then brayed CTHM Twilight, brayered CTMH Ocean forwards the bottom and CTMH Star Spangled Blue at the bottom. Then I stamped waves in Star Spangled Blue. Stamped clouds in versamark and then added white embossing powder and heat set. Clouds, Waves, and sentiment came from CTMH stamp set True Happiness.  I cut and colored fisherman on my imagine. Image is from the Circut Sampler Cart. Filled with Black. Cut it at 2.3. The Imagine cuts seem to not be true size compared to regular circut, so I just have to eye ball it. 
Heres the inside of the card
Made the card thinking about my mom and dad enjoying their retirement out of their new boat.
Made this next card by stamping onto white paper and coloring fish with colored pencils. Then I cut it out. I stamped CTMH Background stamp in Twilight onto yellow cardstock. Then added scrap paper to right corner.

This is what the boys did while I was in my craftroom creating.

I made this little treat box with my personal cricut awhile ago. It was cut at the biggest settling it would allow. I think it was off of the Wild Cards cart as a bonus. I added rose made from the CTMH Art Philisopy cart.
I stamped CTMH image and colored it in with coloring pencils.

\Stamped background in Sweet Leaf and then sentiment in purple.

stamped background stamp in ocean to make a card sometime later.

Another scrap ready to make something later!!!
