Been brayering again..............

...so I could enter a card into the oldiebutagoodie challenge. The theme is to make a card featuring a fairy, mermaid, dragon, or any other mythical being.  You must use a stamp that you've owned for at least 6 months and you can't use a digi image to be eligible to win the prize on offer.


I only own two stamps that fall into this category and both are fairies from Lavinia stamps which cry out for a brayered background.  This is what I used:


Adirondack eggplant and butterscotch  ink pads
Versafine onyx black to stamp the images
Lavinia fairy and toadstool stamps
Clarity grass stamp
Habico vine and pebbles stamps
Brayer


I used a punch out circle to mask the moon and matted onto some SU purple cardstock and then  onto a white A5 card blank.


This was such a fun card to make, \nd although my hands were covered in ink by the time I'd finished,  I think I'll be doing more of this technique!


 Hope you enjoy your weekend.Bye for now.x
