Playing with my brayer

I had really good intentions of tidying my table, but had to have another go with the brayer before I put it away... five cards later, there wasn't any time left to tidy! I won't bore you with all of them, but here are two. The first was the last one I made with the dregs of ink still left on the brayer. The stamps are from the ISC tranquil plate. I extended a few of the branches with a marker pen. It was partly inspired by D.K. Fisher's photo here
The second card features one of my all time favourite stamps from the Artful Stamper. I brayered the background of both with Kaleidacolor Calypso. I ran my brayer over a sheet of scrap paper first for this second one. the colour is still quite intense, but I do like colour! I coloured the leaves with metallic gel pens. the background paper is made with creative colour sprays from crafty notions.

Both cards are lovely Sally. I love the backgrounds with the brayer, you are really talented with it. The tree with the gold leaves is my favourite though, it's stunning.

WOW! If I had come here first, I would have not been able to organize my stamps, lol! Those brayer backgrounds are amazing I need to learn that technique. Gina
