A Bit Dusty!!

I am just LOVIN' this new Dusty Durango color!!!

This card is simple. It's a simple layout. It's simple to make!

I used the "Shadow Brayer" technique on it. It's the piece behind the "Pocket's Silhouettes" image. I thought I'd try that technique in a different color. Ok, truth is, I HAD to use a different color than the Crushed Curry I had originally done the technique in. I didn't have any Crushed Curry ribbon yet! It's on my wish list (along with a ton of other things!!!).

I used the new Stampin' Up! "Elegant Bouquet" embossing folder. It's the same folder used for the "Shadow Brayer" technique so it blends in well with the other elements of the card.

I stamped the image using Dusty Durango and I sponged the edges in the same color too. Not a lot of extra colors here, is there??? But it worked!!

This card can be used for quite a few occasions. I LOVE versatile stamp sets, don't you?

Give this technique a try. It makes some nice background layers. I wish my brayer was REALLY thick so I could get the image to roll a longer distance off it. I'd like to do a full 5-1/4" x 4" piece of card stock as a background piece. I'll have to keep my eyes out to see if they even make a brayer that big!!!

I forgot to draw the name for the blog candy. I will do it on Monday, just to be fair to those who are gone for the weekends and don't check blogs until they are back! Sorry for the delay.

Thank you for visiting today,
