Brayer Shadows Technique

Here's a fun technique I just discovered by accident. Isn't that how most techniques are discovered?? Well, most of the ones I discover are by accident!!! LOL

Take a piece of card stock and run it through your embossing folder. This folder is the new Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions "Elegant Bouquet." It's SO pretty and elegant really belongs in the title because it is VERY elegant!! It's really difficult to see the embossing in the photo but trust me, it's there. If you click on the photo you'll be able to see it better.

After you emboss it, turn it over. Ink up your brayer. Here I used Crushed Curry. I ran the brayer over the embossed are once. Then I took the brayer and ran it over a clean piece of card stock. It left a very fun impression on the new card stock. A wider brayer would be more effective for doing a background piece. But you do want to be careful because where you stop with the brayer you have a darker line that is not so attractive on your new card stock. I will be cutting my new card stock around the design area and placing that on my card. I'll work up a card later in the week using it. But for now I just wanted to show you this fun and quick technique. What's fun with this is that the piece you embossed can be inked many times before you have to set it aside to dry or toss it.

This one will make #10 in the third set of 20 pages. I'm half way there! I do have some extra packages of sets 1 and set 2. If you are interested in them please email me. You can also go to my webstore and purchase these pages on CD to use for technique page books for classes! It's a great way to bring in some new and fun things for your customers to attend, do and have for themselves!!!

The photo of the technique page is coming. I'm still in the process of putting it together.

Thank you for visiting today,
