Another couple of favourite products feature on today’s Congrats card.
I love the brayer, sadly for me, I haven’t used it much in the last few years. I guess I have had so many other things to play with I had forgotten about lil’ ol’ brayer.
Featuring the emboss resist technique, I first stamped my imagery in VersaMark. Here i used the leaf image from the Grateful Bunch stamp set. Next I sprinkled over white embossing powder and heat set it. Next I created a coloured panel over the top using two complimentary green inks.
Starting with Mint Macaroon, I inked up the brayer, by gently rolling it over the ink pad until the ink evenly coated the roller. Next, I lightly rolled the brayer over top of my embossed image, to apply the ink. I just kept rolling over and over the image until the ink was evenly applied to my panel. Next came Cucumber Crush, with this colour I only rolled the ink over part of the embossed image, allowing the Mint to shine through too.
I added a layered flower from the same stamp set and its coordinating Blossom Bunch punch and finished the card off with my other favourite retiring item – Expressions natural elements.
The layout for this card, came from the sketch layout challenge over at Can You Case it? [#122]. I hope they like my take on the sketch.
I created this card for a special lady in my team. I hope she likes it!
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
