Brayered Sympathy

This card uses a new technique to me and just might get me to break out the brayer more often.

Fab n’ Funky Challenge #91 ~ A Hard Theme
Sympathy cards are always hard for me to create and this was a totally new technique for me as well.
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge ~ Try a New Technique
I’ve seen lots of neat brayered backgrounds, but never tried them. For this card I masked off the sun and brayered ink over the cardstock. I inked up the stamp with my SU Markers and stamped over the brayered ink. I like the ‘fuzzy’ effect and think its works nicely for a sympathy card.
