Something a bit different....

It's been a very long time since my brayer last saw daylight so thought I would have a little play.
I started off with slightly 'coated' card and using a Big and Juicy Hydranga ink pad inked up my card but masking out a circle for the moon first before brayering.
Several stamps have been used on this card, the reeds and background is one stamp which I bought on that well known auction site quite a while ago but I dont remember it having a name it was just an unmounted stamp. The birds over the moon is a stamp from Lavina Stamps, the 'trees' stamped on the top of the card is a little stamp from Clarity but any leaf stamp will do. Having stamped I though the card needed something else so I've added my little bird punch with leaf from Stampin Up. I really enjoyed making this card so think I might do another one.

Well done with the brayering and great idea to use the punched birds to give it some dimension. B & J inkpads are so useful.

Lovely card Anne - well done on the brayering technique; looks really good. Makes a difference using the SU bird on the branch - gives it some dimension.
