Me techniquey? No not me!

If you follow my blog, you know I am not really into all the different techniques of stamping! Don't get me wrong....there are so many amazing ones! I just think that I am not good at them! I do not distress. I don't rip. I don't sand or edge distress. (OK on a few occasions I do.) My cards are simple and clean, and it is hard for me to go outside the lines sometimes! I do want you to know that I do try to get outside the lines!

One thing about me that some have found shocking, is that I do not own a brayer. Well...until a couple weeks ago. I went to a FAB meeting with some FAB girls and they taught me that I needed a brayer. We made a card very similar to this one, so this idea of the leaves is not my own but the card I threw together with Heather's inspiration! Thanks Heather!!!

How easy is this? It took no time at all and the brayer just gave that paper such a great look!
Now all I need to do is learn some more ways to use it! Wait...would I be techniquey if I did that?


OK so that's it for today! Have a good one!
(Oh a little shout out to my BFF Jen! Happy Birthday chick! Hope it's a good one!!)

  1. What a perfect and pretty fall card!
    I used to do all kinds of techs, but seldom liked the way my card turned out, so I quit...but, because of that, I have owned a brayer for a long time

  2. I love this card. Hmmm...techniquey?! I say try something - if you like it keep doing if not - don't. I've tried lots of things - I always go back to clean and simple.

  3. I am totally surprised to know all that about you. I started out like that over 12 years ago and now every technique I see I already know how to do. Still seeking new things, but girl that card is absolutely beautiful. Stay the way you are clean and simple cause you do it really WELL!!!
