A friend and I were experimenting with brayering a background, something new for both of us.  We brayered different scraps to paper to see what happened on different types of paper and I have used one of them in the background in the frame.  I have had the embossed frame hiding in my stash for over a year but I knew it was waiting for something special - it was just the right size as a background paper for the frame.  I took out the rubber stamps and chose one from each of the three sets I selected and created this silhouette picture.  I have added three spots in two opposite corners; they were punched from scraps of black card.  Voila ..

  14. That brayering is excellent, perfectly executed. You have done it! That is such a good idea to punch dots from your snippets of card for decoration. That makes use of even smaller snippets but it makes it harder to UIU -mmm.... xx Maggie
