Papertrey Ink's latest Make It Monday challenge, presented by Betsy Veldman, was to brayer ink over an embossed panel. My brayer is in pretty bad shape so I just went old school and did direct to paper with my ink pad. I played with several different impression plates and inks and this is the one that became a card.
I used the Animal Prints Impression Plate which I haven't played with yet. I also elected to use several other die cuts - the Heart #7 by Accucut & the Zelda alpha from Quickutz (another rarely used item) - to keep it simple and show off the embossing. The inside has the remainder of the sentiment.
The sentiment is from Wonderful Words Additions and Tiny Treats: Valentines.
This was a really fun technique and one I want to remember to use more in the future.
One more creation from last night finally put a favorite colored image onto a card. I wanted to really highlight the colored image, after all she's the rock star. One thing I really liked is the paper on the bottom of the card - the design really reminds me of bearings.
