Playing with the Brayer

I have been challenged to get reacquainted with my brayer from a friend who just bought a brayer and is looking for tips in an upcoming technique class ... so this is a card that I made which used the brayer with the Texturz Plates through the Big Shot to create the pretty Plum paper in the back layer here.

Effect is created using Very Vanilla cardstock and the texturz plate inked up with the brayer filled with Perfect Plum -helps togives a nice 'vintage feel' to this card seeing it peek out from back there.

Also wanted to showcase the upcoming Strength and Hope set from the Summer mini which will be available as of May 1st cause it is just my FAVORITE out of the mini ... although there are a few others in there that customers are going to be loving I am sure!

I used all 4 of the stamp sets i
n this layout as inspired by a card I saw over on Splitcoast Stampers here ... love the 'word stamp' repeatedly stamped to make the background paper and well the H Hope stamp fits perfectly in the 1 1/4 square punch layered with the 1 3/8 punch over top of the 'swirl' stamp and well this little butterfly is just gorgeous - it almost looks like it is jumping off the card.

Also got a chance to incorporate some of the Chantilly Lace which paired well here I think - over all just LOVED all the elements in this card!
