Today’s card was created for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #38 challenge for brayering and impression plate techniques:
I used the Book Print Impression Plate with the brayer and Colorbox’s Robin’s Egg ink over Vintage Cream cardstock. I liked the splotchy, grungy look of it, so I didn’t work too hard to give it flawless coverage.
I think I am now half-heartedly creating with the thought in mind that this 31 Days challenge is essentially over. Either that, or I’m busier than I thought and my mind is considerably occupied by other things. Because this card took me a few hours to create and it felt like a very strained process.
I didn’t really have a plan in mind for the card. I tried a few different impression plates with a few different ink colors, but this was the only one I liked at all. So I decided to use the alphabet theme for a baby card. And since I’ve already created 2 girl baby cards during this 31 Days time frame, I decided to go with a boy card.

I’m not sure my blues work together, but with my brain and my creativity effectively stumped, I finally had to just stamp something on a Mat Stack frame and call it done at 11p.m. because I was desperate to go to sleep.
Well, I’m off to the dentist (oh joy). Have a great day, everyone!
