Daring Adventure - Brayer Technique

I stamped this card after seeing a beautiful brayering color combination by a Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Tasmania. Stampin' Up! has an incredible resource for demonstrators to share ideas and projects through Stampin' Connection, a demonstrator only forum and gallery. Currently there are nearly 200,000 photos in the gallery at Stampin' Connection.

I brayered More Mustard ink onto the center of some Very Vanilla cardstock and then brayered Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy to the top and bottom. Then I swiped the piece with the Embossing Buddy, a powder pillow that helps keep stray Embossing Powder only where you want it - on the stamped image. I stamped the sentiment from Daring Adventure in Basic Black Craft ink and heat embossed it with the Heat Gun and Clear Embossing Powder. Then I stamped a few of the boot prints off the edge in Not Quite Navy ink.

The Cherry Cobbler piece is embossed in the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. For the ribbon embellishment, I wrapped the Not Quite Navy Taffeta Ribbon around my fingers to create two loops and then pinched them in the middle with a Glimmer Brad. I added it to the stamped piece by punching a hole through the top two layers.

The layout for this card is from the Sketch Challenge in a recent Take Ten magazine. Several of the stampers in my monthly Technique Club swap with each other and this month's theme was to follow the Take Ten sketch. I'll share their beautiful cards in the next few days.

Big, bright colors = NO FEAR! That's why I'm stuck in neutral...
