April Stamp Club: Part 2

Brayered Vintage Wallpaper

I was looking around Splitcoaststampers and saw THIS note bag which inspired the card we made at our Stamp Club workshop in April.  I thought brayering over the debossed side of the card stock was a neat idea and really like the effect.

Brayer on Debossed Card Stock:

Run the Early Espresso card stock in Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder through the Big Shot.  Lay the card stock down, making sure the embossed image is indented. Ink up brayer in Early Espresso ink and roll over card stock until ink is even over the entire piece of card stock.  The debossed image, or indented parts, will not have any ink on them so they will appear lighter in colour. 

Use the Early Espresso and Tangerine Tango markers to colour the words on the Word Play stamp.  Huff on stamp before stamping on card stock.

Run one Tangerine Tango flower through the Big Shot in the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  Sponge all edges of flowers, punched out leaves and card stock with sentiment.  You can add a score line to the center of the leaves if you wish.

Use a paper piercer to add a brad to the center of the flowers.

Adhere layers of card stock and flowers.  Use a two-way glue pen to glue the thin strip of tangerine tango card stock to the card.  Pop of the flower with a dimensional.
