Distress Ink and Brayer Watercolor Background

Good morning! Dropping by this morning with a card using an ADORABLE new Unity Stamp image - I mean, REALLY adorable! These otters are about as cute as it gets!

The other day I came across my rubber brayer in my supplies, and realized it had been a long time since I used it. Soooo...I played around with it to make a sort of "ink smooshed" looking background using it - and made a Quick Tip Video of the process:

I love how the look is very similar to ink smooshing, but a little more controlled which is nice.

Added some die cut layers, cut the sentiment with a speech bubble border die, and colored that cute otter in with Copics - this card is also nice and flat for mailing!

Product links are all below - including affiliate links where possible, which simply means if you use one of the links below that I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
