A little more texture

I haven’t had any time to stamp lately but I made this card a couple of weeks back when I was playing with the technique of laying the cardstock on the ink pad then rolling the brayer across it to pick up the texture of the fabric.   The green panel with white flowers was done this way on a Certainly Celery ink pad after embossing the flowers in clear.

The background strip was made using one mask at the bottom.  I stamped the flower repeatedly without re-inking the stamp then added a little sponging at the bottom.

I hope to be stamping again this weekend, especially as a stamp filled package arrived in the mail today!


Stamps: Of the Earth, Teensy Tiny Wishes
Inks: Certainly Celery, Versamark

    What a pretty card! How clever to lay the card right on the stamp pad. It makes a beautiful impression! And the shadows of the flowers alongside the embossed flowers are such a lovely contradiction. I love this!

    Hello Heather, it’s a beautiful card, I like the idea of only masking the lower edge. It has a beautiful effect! Thanks for the inspiration, greetz, Miranda

    I love your monotone cards Heather. I’ve used the ink pad-to-card stock technique but never tried laying the card stock on top of the pad and brayering. It produces a very interesting effect.

    This is gorgeous, Heather. I love the positive/negative flower images. I must try the card-ink pad-brayer technique!
