Use a brayer to build up beau­ti­ful inked back­grounds on your cards

The smell of pine, cou­pled with the sight of deep green fo­liage dot­ted with bright red berries, con­jures the magic of Christ­mas. Here, Vicky Bai­ley has cap­tured na­ture’s beauty in the depths of win­ter, on her range of cards fea­tur­ing gor­geous inked back­grounds.

Take a look at the project on the fol­low­ing pages to dis­cover how to use a brayer to ap­ply dif­fer­ent shades of ink, so you can add a two-tone ef­fect in one ap­pli­ca­tion. You’ll also dis­cover how easy it is to cre­ate a strik­ing de­sign by ap­ply­ing a lit­tle ink to your em­boss­ing fold­ers – start inking big!
