Brayered Sympathy

These cards were started for a Stampin Royalty Challenge but I deviated from the plan and came up with these cards. I love Pacific Point blue (last year's In Color) This card was made with the Eastern Blooms stampset. I stamped the branches in White Craft Ink and then Heat Embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next I brayered on the orange and yellow. Finally I stamped the blooms and cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and it was punched out with the word window and then mounted on the Modern Label punch out. Finally I used Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon to finish it all off.

These are beautiful!! I'll have to give this a try as I don't use my brayer often! Did you use glossy white or whisper white paper?Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a moment to leave me a comment!

I used Whisper White this time - but glossy works too.

Great color scheme!! I don't know if you watch project runway but last week they made a comment about blue and orange don't go together and I totally disagree! You are demonstrating how great those colors can look together.
