This card is for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 169. I made the focal image of the birds on the branch first and then browsed around to find a sketch for it to fit into. SSSC169 worked perfectly.
Believe it or not, this is my first brayered image. I had a brayer a long, long time ago, back in the prehistoric stamping days, but it had long since disappeared. I just recently purchased a new one and finally put it to work. I just love the results of the smooth, graduated ink. I thought with the night sky and the bird image, plus the texture from the Lacy Brocade EF, this card conjurs up a Halloween-ish feel. I left the sentiment off on purpose because I'm just not sure exactly who I'm sending this card to yet.
I rubbed the embossed cardstock with some Blue Bayou ink to make it stand out a little more. My other embellishment is two pearls colored with a black sharpie.
Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: birds from Inkadinkadoo, Weathered Backround
Cardstock: Black, Blue Bayou, Island Indigo
Ink: Soft Sky, Cool Carribean, Blue Bayou, Black
Accessories: pearls colored with black sharpie, Lacy Brocade EF, Baja Breeze wide ribbon, scallop lattice punch from EK Success, brayer, circle punch
Thanks for taking a peek and have a wonderful day!
