I am going to say a 'B' word - are you ready for it - some of you are going to be shocked, some horrified and others will laugh - okay...put on your seat belt cause here I go....BRAYERING!!! I tried it the other day and the result is terrible!! My sincerest apologies to Michelle Zindorf and my friend Ann, who tried to show me the technique! LOL!
I decided to use the result as if you didn't know it was brayering you wouldn't be laughing at it....but honestly - what happened!! LOL! The half circle is the result of doing something we all know NOT to do - drinking a coffee while crafting maybe I should call this card 'Bad Moon Rising' or something to incorporate it and make it look deliberate!!
The rest of the card I am happy with, especially this gorgeous reindeer from Layers of Color, using the Reindeer Waltz Clear Art Stamps, I have embossed it in black - don't you just love all of the detail!!
The embossing folder has had a Distressing Ink pad swiped over it and I love this effect! A little bit of ribbon, bling and some inked tearing and you have one quick Christmas card - but oh the brayering.....LOL!
