Golden Trees

Today, I have a brayered card, which is quick to make. I recently got this Stampscapes Three Bare Trees stamp and had this image of them gold embossed. Here’s the card:

The scene is done on glossy cardstock and brayered with dye inks. First, the trees were gold embossed and then Memento Summer Sky was brayered over the cardstock. After that, the moon was masked and I brayered another layer of Summer Sky. Then the following inks were applied to the card: Adirondack Stonewashed, Memento Danube Blue, Adirondack Denim, always leaving some of the previous colour showing. For the ground, I used torn pieces of paper as masks and brayered the inks on top to create subtle heaps of snow. Dots were added with a white gel pen and the ‘halos’ around the dots with white pigment ink.
Because the trees were embossed, the areas around the branches didn't pick up quite as much ink from the brayer. I liked the way in which it gave a snowly feeling to the trees.
Thank you for stopping by!!
