Father Christmas was kind enough to bring me a brayer this year so I've had a great afternoon playing with it! It's not something I've ventured into too much before but you can achieve some great results useful for all kinds of background effects. I used some glossy card & a Kaleidacolor pad. This is a dye inkpad which has 6 pads within which you can use together or you can separate them. You get some  really varied results using a dye inkpad on glossy card & a lovely rainbow effect. I stamped onto the background which I had created using Leaf Sprig & the Stazon pad- nothing else will do on glossy unless you want to emboss with clear powder. I cut away a strip around 1" wide from the right hand edge of the card blank & applied 2 brayered & stamped strips which had been edged with the Teal Blue pad to the edges. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Blue Lagoon & is another message from the Stampedous Perfectly Clear "Thoughtful Wishes" set which I have featured in previous weeks- still plenty more to come yet! Now all that's left to do is to layer the main pieces onto some teal card before mounting onto the card & add the Card Candi. A bit different don't you think?!

Pop into Japonica to see the real thing!
