This card was made for today's CAS Challengs - to create a background. Well, as some of you know I've been practicing my new brayer techniques - so decided to give it another try.
This card is also for another PUNCHKATEER PAL with a March Birthday - (3/14). Happy Birthday Musezi!!
Before folding the card, placed a Stickynote in the center of the card-front portion. Then brayered THE ENTIRE CARD - front and back - at an angle in various green and blue colors. Then stamped my image and words, colored the image with markers and pencils, and added those super FAB green gems. These little gems sparkle in blues, greens and purples.
I'm still not comfortable with too much white space and while I did not *touch* it on this card - I sure WANTED to!!!!
Thanks everyone for taking a peek!!

Great brayering and I love that flower! I feel the same way about white space, I want to do something with it every time.

Oooh, you are in so much trouble using all these brayering techniques on your cards and I have yet to make one. You muzt be the fazt learner in zee family. I know what you mean about CAS. So hard to do. You nailed the b/g Audzi and I love the image and sentiment you chose. So, a sticky note on the inside of the card and brayering on the outside. Gosh, I might actually be able to do that one!

Another lovely job with that brayer. Oh, poor Pam..she said you were twins and she hasn't brayered the first card yet. She'll have to go back for more lessons. :) Well, that didn't make sense, did it? But, I think we know what it means. LOL Beautiful card and I think the white space looks great.

Beautifully done! I too am rather afraid of 'empty space' on my cards but it looks just perfect on this. Great job with the brayering! Your card is spectacular! :)
