Hi ya all - just a quick card here for AnnaBelle Stamps blog - they have say it with kraft, red and brown - I like these colours and I was tinkering around with vellum, my brayer and some kaleidacolor ink pads that I had.  So I teamed up with the shaped sketch from Moxie Fab and came up with the following card ... 

A close up of the brayered vellum - I decided to brayer first, let it dry and then emboss with watermark ink pad and emboss with clear powder (another way would be to emboss first then brayer but I wanted the color of the velum to come through so I did the brayering first.
 I like the simplicity of the sketch used and off course I made one hell of a mess doing this card - my hands are covered in ink and there is embossing powder everywhere!
materials - Kraft, AC crimson, Core 'dinations brownie cardstock; AnnaBelle Stamps 'daisy delight' stamps; Versamark watermark stamp pad, Kaleidacolor cappaccino delight ink pad; Speedball 4" brayer; clear and white embossing powder; Vellum; brads; Creative Memories circle cutters; Spellbinders petite scalloped circle large.
Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend.
