Archive for the ‘Brayered Background’ Category

A big congrats to Yoo-Rah, the newest Featured Stamper (FS820) on Splitcoast! She has wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the brayered background, most of the colors & the silhouette tree. I used different images, embossed the image, and made mine a Halloween card.

For my spooky crow scene, I dug out a brayered bg I made ages ago, using a rainbow ink pad w/ a silver Marvy metallic marker. After brayering the color, I dotted the silver marker onto the rubber brayer, spritzed it water then rolled over some areas. A little hard to see here but in person, it has a silvery glow in areas. The all over bg stamp of the crows in the trees was stamped w/ black & heat embossed w/ black powder. I also embossed the little greeting strip & added it to a shaped tag cut out of some of the same bg.

Thanks so much for stopping  by!

A big congrats to Lynn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS788) on Splitcoast! She has wonderful gallery full of scrap book pages & I chose THIS as the base for my card. I used a similar layout & similar colors, but used different images & dies, & made mine a bird birthday card.

For my card, I bartered a piece of white card stock w/ the Distress inks, going from light at the top to dark at the bottom. After heat setting, I placed it in my Misti & stamped the bird bg w/ the Versaclair ink then clear embossed it. I used a bit of water to remove a little ink on the birds, so they would show up a little better. I wanted a little sparkle, so I spritzed it w/ a clear shimmer spray before die cutting it w/ the scalloped mimi slimline die. It was a little too long so I trimmed off the top & bottom a tiny bit. The bird was stamped, colored & die cut, w/ a couple of extra blank birds behind it to elevate it a bit. The Birthday part of the greeting was die cut out of thick white card that I sponged on the same colors I used in the bg. Some Versamark was rubbed over it then it was clear embossed twice to give it a shiny, enameled look. A few clear dew drops were added to the bg. A little clear Wink of Stella was added to the bird’s tail feathers.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC833), we’re going to a wonderful Lighthouse Pinterest Board where I found THIS lovely picture.

For my southwest card, I started w/ a background I made quite a while ago. I thought the purples & oranges were good colors for a desert sunset scene. The bg was done by smooshing the Marvy metallic markers onto a rubber brayer, spritzing w/ water & rolling it over a piece of white card. If I remember correctly, I did it once w/ the yellow, orange & silver colors & again w/ the purples & silver. The hills & cactus plants were die cut out of a few shades of purple & I used part of the leftover orange areas for the cowgirl, cowboy & roadrunner. They were also popped up on foam to give them a little depth.
