Bethlehem

Here's another Christmas card I made during a recent stamp camp. This card features the technique called 'Bouncing Brayer.' The card came out beautifully and are quite simple to make once you get the hang-of-it.


The colors used on this card is Rich Razzleberry and Not quite Navy. Set your Rich Razzleberry and Not Quite Navy pads side by side and ink your brayer with half of each color. Bounce brayer over shimmery white cardstock. Pivot your wrist so that the Navy stays in one spot at the middle of the paper. Don't roll the brayer. Next, using the wise men stamp the image with black craft ink and heat emboss with black embossing powder. Embellish as you like. It's that simple.

I would have never thought these two colors would work well together but they do. I love how the rhinestones sets it off. Below is a video I found on YouTube regarding the bouncing brayer technique just in case you would like to see it in action.
