I changed the color scheme, image, and sentiment. I also added 2 bg panels to compliment the colors I chose on the main panel. I did use my brayer but using a technique I just learned. Taking plastic wrap drop a couple of drops of alcohol ink and also a couple of drops of alcohol blending solution. Squish together, un-squish - lol, and run your brayer through. It will come out looking mottled. I think it leaves an interesting palette. Really quick and easy - but a bit messy :#
Thanks so much for taking a closer look. Hope you like it :)

Love those colours together. They are like the lovely patina you find on old copper. The black silhouette stamp agains it is perfect. Actually has a bit of an Asian look. Ginko and celedon? Great tribute to Brenda. TFS

Your brayered background and colors are so pretty Barb!!! I am LOVING all these wonderful techniques you are sharing on your beautiful cards!!! The stamped image is so pretty and I really like those black peppery dots? I am not sure if you did that with a toothbrush? But the effect over your brayering is fantastic! Gorgeous card!!!
