Getting out the Brayer..

Okay, it's been a long time since I used my brayer for anything!  So I thought today would be a perfect day to do that and use some of these yummy paints with it to create a background for my card.
I used "Garnet" and "Blush".

I used glossy photo paper and first put the paints on a scrap piece and added a good amount of water to each color to help it smear a little better and to also help keep the paint wet longer (the paint was almost like soup), as the paint does dry pretty quickly.

Then I ran a brayer though it a few times and then ran the brayer across my good sheet of photo paper!

Oh does it shimmer!! :) Yummy!

I used "Winter Frost" to cover the hearts!

I embossed the photo paper to give it a little texture as well.

Hope you like what I created! Have a nice day!
