Papertrey Ink ~ Make It Monday #38 Brayer Techniques Challenge

I've been wanting to play along with Papertrey Ink's challenges...but didn't have any of their products...Until now!! I was able to play along this week!!

Here is the card I made for the Brayer Techniques challenge...sorry for the bad was after dark when I took the pic and the lighting was bad!!:

and a close-up:

I haven't played with my brayer for along time...I really enjoyed making this card...

My card base is Gina K Designs cardstock...I embossed a piece of white cardstock with an embossing folder and then used a brayer and ink to add color...I cut part of the front away on both of the card base and the embossed piece...I used a piece of vellum and made a window...This took a few tries to get it just right...but it was worth the extra effort!!...I used a glitter pen to add glitter to the white swirls on the cardstock...and tied some blue Tulle around the card front...

Using the Flower Fusion #1 Stamp set from PTI...I stamped one of the flowers and the stem six times...I used the Flower Fusion #1 die to cut out the flowers...and cut the stems out by hand...The stems were glued together back to back...and attached to one set of the flowers...I used pop dots to layer the flowers together...a Quickie Glue pen was used to add MS glitter to the centers of the flowers...I added a strip of score tape to the top and bottom of the vellum piece...and attached the flowers and stems the back side of the front of the card...

The sentiment is from Unity Stamps...and I thought I was finished with the card...I didn't like the way the flowers looked through the vellum...and the glitter on the center flower wasn't completely dry and smooshed onto the I decided to add Brads to the center of the flowers on the it's done!!...I think!!!...LOL!!

Have a great night!!
