Brayer Card


Just thought I'd show you my first brayered card, I'm really happy with the results even though it could be improved I'm sure with practise. I've never used a brayer before and I wasn't too sure if I'd get much use of it or not but I know I will now I've tried it, it was so much fun! Anyway, I used the big and juicy stamp pad (wow its huge!) in 'Spice',  a stamp from the Stampin'Up 'pocket silhouettes' set to make the tree's (can't take credit for that idea, I saw it done on another blog a while ago while blog hopping and now I can't find the blog to give credit) I added the image to some pumpkin pie and chocolate chip card, then punched a couple of eyelets using my cropodile.
I am adding this card into the following challenges:
The Crafty Calender~ Autumn
Stampin for the Weekend~ Orange, Brown and Green

I love your choice to use the brayer, I've been trying to get mine to work the way I want, as I've got a plan for my christmas cards and really need to get them started.
Fantastic card, and so original, good luck and thanks for joining us at SFTW.
