Brayered Background Technique

This card was easy and quick to make but the effect is amazing. This card features the brayered background technique using glossy paper. I used Bashful Blue and Marina Mist ink pads and laid them side-by-side and inked up the brayer.

Run the brayer over the glossy paper until all of the ink is blended. I then used Versamark and embossed with black powder the Bethlehem image. Rip the top and bottom of the glossy paper; tear toward yourself. Distress the edges. Layer the cardstock and indicated in photo.

Challenges I participated in:
Mami Doodles; 'Anything Goes'
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle; 'Monochromatic'

Here is a video which provides some information on how to create a background using a brayer.
