Brayer and embossing fun
So, I decided to enter into the world of the "brayer". For those of you who are not aware, a brayer looks like this:
It can be used to apply an even amount of ink on a sheet of paper in no time! So, I used the brayer to apply Cherry Cobbler ink to the raised impression made by the Petals-A-Plenty impressions folder. I learned this technique from my upline. She loves using her brayer.
I made this card for Art Freckles' December Challenge and for the final challenge at Everything But the Kitchen Sink. I'm so sad that this challenge site is closing, but I understand.
Of course, Cherry Cobbler needs some Old Olive to complement it and that's exactly what I did. The base of the card and the satin ribbon are in Old Olive. This could be my new favourite colour combo. Watch out, Pumpkin Pie & Early Expresso! I don't think so.
The bells were watercoloured and raised with dimensionals. I like this card. Off to make a few more!
Thanks for stopping by.
