Make It Monday #38: Celebrate Today

This week's Make It Monday technique shows us how to make a beautiful background using a brayer and an impression plate.  Click here to see the video.  I've never done anything like this, but was excited to try.  I have several impression plates from PTI, and was able to buy a brayer at Michael's yesterday.

Here is what I made:

I used the Mehndi Medallion impression plate and Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink.  The ribbon is from my special stash of silk ribbon from Britex in San Francisco.  I put the sentiment on a tiny tag die cut, and stamped it with one of the mini images from the Mehndi Medallion.  The panel is popped up from the Smokey Shadow card base with dimensionals.  It's impossible to see from this photo, but there is a real coppery sheen to the card from the Brilliance Ink. 

Here is a peek at the inside of the card.  I stamped it with a very light inking of the Mehndi Medallion stamp, so I could still write over it.

Thanks for Visiting

  3. Just gorgeous, Joyce! I can imagine how stunning it looks in real life with all that shimmer and texture! That ribbon and sweet tag is lovely as well! I knew I needed a brayer, and don't think I'll be able to get one in time, but have been wanting to try some letterpress with the Impression plates!
