CHF Challenge--Brayer

So this week's challenge was using the brayer. I haven't used my brayer in a while and decided to create a ghosting look using versamark and ink (ink stamp in versamark then stamp glossy--brayer over using coloured ink). I also really like non-traditional colours for Christmas and so I chose PINK as my focal colour with cranberry and kraft as accents.

The trees were stamped on white paper and the poinsettia was stamped over top using cranberry and current.

I LOVE this. I love Christams cards that aren't red and green, and if there is pink it is just a bonus. Beautiful card.
