Created By Courtney Challenge #35

This weeks challenge is to use your brayer. I'm embarrassed to say it's been at least a year, if not longer since the last time I used mine. I don't even own a rubber one, I still have a sponge one, lol.

I stamped the black butterflies first and then I used 5 different Close To My Heart Blues and rolled them on from lightest to darkest. My picture looks kindof washed out...but its really more vibrant in real life. The sentiment, I got from Kari. :)

Paper: SU Cardstock
Stamps: CTMH Butterflies
PTI Buttons and Floss


Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's projects. All of them are listed here in this CBC Challenge Chicks list. If you play along with us, remember to link your creation to Courtney's blog, and you could win a prize from Courtney! If you upload to SCS, the keyword is CBCC35.

Everyone have a great Tuesday!

PS...this is what I made the last I used my brayer. It was a challenge that Pam Klassen did on the CTMH boards. While hunting for this on Livejournal...I forgot how much I use to scrapbook. :( I really should get on my 2008 album...that's where I stopped.
