Showing My Brayer Some Love and Scrapbook Star

Note this: LOVE YOUR BRAYER! I bought a brayer a while back and rarely use it. To make this typewriter stamp (Cornish Heritage Farms) come to life, follow these instructions:
Stamp image onto white paper with Versamark, apply clear embossing powder, and heat set.

  1. Trim paper to desired size.
  2. With brayer, apply dark green ink (Library Green from Ranger), but leave it blotchy. Wipe ink off image.
  3. With a second green ink (Lettuce Adirondack by Ranger), brayer over the the image and to one side only. Wipe ink off image.
  4. With black ink (Black Soot Distress Ink by Ranger), brayer over the image ONLY. You want the black to get into the image's cracks to make it stand out more.
  5. THEN - take the whole piece of paper and stamp it with VersaMark and apply 2 coats of UTEE embossing powder by Ranger. This is essentially a nice glossy coat you are adding to make the colours pop.

Here are some sneak peeks of Scrapbook Star's April 2010 Kit. It is a lovely kit, and full of girly and Spring colours with loads of embellishments to matchy match!!

Have a great Thursday friends!
