...and there you will see this card I created for their Halloween Challenge as a Design Team member. I had more fun doing this card. The background is a brayered technique using all the Distress inks mentioned on the Crop Stop post. I started at the top brayering with Mustard Seed, then placed a post it note cut in a circle shape for the moon and brayered once more with Mustard Seed. I then proceeded to layer Spiced Marmaladr over that blending toward the horizontal center of the card, then used Fired Brick and Rusty Hinge to top it off. The bottom "murky" layer was done using Weathered Wood and brayered and blended into the top colors. Brayering is so much fun once you get started. I stamped all my images using Versafine Black ink and penned in some bats over the moon. A black punched border placed at the top finished off this spooky card.
So drag out that brayer that's collecting dust and experiment! It really is a lot of fun!
