Brayered Resist cards

Okay, as promised! These are the cards my folks made in my stamp room on their visit here. We used Versamark ink to stamp the image on glossy paper, waited a minute for it to dry, and then using a rubber brayer, rolled over it randomly with dye ink. And that's it! So simple and fun to see what develops. Kudos to them for whipping up cards in someone else's space, and my Dad not being a stamper - what a good sport you were to play too!! A good evening for the ol' memory box. :o)

Mom's card features a pine bough by Great Impressions, a sentiment stamp by Inkdadinkado and a Marvy Dee Gruenig Blending Blox in Shades of Olive. The image panel is the size of an A2 card so the finished card is a bit larger.

Dad's card features a leaf small background stamp by All Night Media, and a word stamp (one of my all time favorites!) by Endless Creations. The lettering was stamped in Perfect Plum by SU! and the background was brayered in Kaleidocolor's Cappuchino Delight.
I just love to see people as they stamp in person - I always see something done in a way I hadn't thought of - and of course what a thrill when a self-professed non-stamper picks up an inkpad and stamps and makes a beautiful card!!
Thanks for looking!
