Fabulous Brayer

I dusted off my brayer again and tried something a little different from my other tries. This time I brayered the card stock first using Barely Banana, Rose Red and Brocade Blue. I then stamped the large flower from the Fabulous Flowers set with versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Once it was cooled I outlined each petal with the sharp end of my Stampin Up black marker. I layered the card using Cameo Coral, Black and Brilliant Blue. Also adding the ticket punch to some of the layers. I used Brocade Blue ribbon attached with Brilliant Blue brads, used dimensionals to pop up the main image. The sentiment is from the Fresh Cuts stamp set.

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Fresh Cuts

Paper: Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Brilliant Blue, Black
Ink: Black, Rose Red, Banana Yellow, Brocade Blue
Accessories: 5/8" Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Bold Bright Brads, Ticket Punch & Dimensionals, Brayer, Versamark, Clear Embossing Powder

Thanks for popping in,

Loved the way you used your pen to outline the clear embossed petals. This a great way to showcase the brayer. Perfect timing as I just had a customer ask me about more things to do with the brayer.

Such a cool card Michelle.

You know that you've got a 'thing' going with that adjective FABULOUS that's going to catch on. In your hands, a brayer does create images that are fabuloso!

Say, when are you going to send me your birthday?
