coloured CAS

Another CAS card today, also playing along with Less is More.

This time, I'm using yellow, red and blue for the background, with white as highlight.

I managed to get a brayer a couple of months back (they are so hard to find nowadays!), and I'm finally using it. I used distress ink reinkers on a tile as I do not have a multi-ink pad. The braying was not as smooth as I had hoped, but I managed to get decent coverage anyway. The colours were brayed onto an embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.

I highlighted the bird with glossy accent, and used paper pen for the plant dots. The sentiment is a computer printout, and layered over a simple, ribbon strip.

Other challenges entered:

supplies: sizzix embossing folder, spellbinders die, glossy accent, viva decor paper pen, distress inks, dovecraft corner rounder; others from my stash

Wow - you did a great job with a brayer and not having a rainbow ink pad to work with. LOVE that embossing folder, and hwhat you did with it. The rounded corners are the perfect touch. TFS!
Cheers, Karen
