More brayering

I watched a video tutorial on using a brayer the other day and decided to try out the technique being demonstrated. I bought this beautiful versacolour tri-colour ink pad on my visit to Hobbycraft on yesterday so decided to test drive it. I used an A6 piece of card (the type you use promarkers on) and although the whole of the piece wasn't perfect I was able to stamp this image and cut out with a square nestie.

The stamp is from a wooden boxful bought from QVC many moons ago and it's never been used before. Card is finished with a bow, a pearl and a sentiment. I was somewhat pleased with the result but will have to have a trial run on a OLC.
 (I also bought a gold, silver and copper version and a Brilliance one in pinks and lavenders so going to play some more).

Challenges entered:
Less is More - anything goes
Rainbow Lady - white space
Fab n Funky - a hard theme (just learning to use a brayer)
Our Creative Corner - not big on pink
