Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jackie challenged us to get out our brayers. I don't really use a brayer that often, so this was fun for me. I used the Bouncing Brayer Technique to create the background for Angel Wings Sophia. I love how you can leave white space with this technique. It makes for a beautiful sky, which I thought would be perfect with Angel Wings Sophia. This card is on its way to Jodi. . .hope she likes it! Make sure you stop by the other Prettie Girl blog to see what they've done with their brayer!

The next Prettie Pajama Party is this Saturday, November 1st at 8pm EST! We hope to see you there! There are quite a few ADORABLE stamps being released. The Prettie Girls will start some sneak peeks on October 30th, so if you want to be tempted, check out their blogs then!
