As I promised some time ago, here is the second technique we used at my "Wonderfall" card bonanza with the "French Foliage Stamp set:
This is a CASE of another Founcer's Circle swap. The theme was easy, two-layer workshop-ready cards and they were really great!
To create this card:
Cut 4 strips of scrap paper 5 1/4" x 1". Put 2-way glue on the backside and allow glue to air-dry to Post-It-Note consistency. After glue is dry, lay first two strips along edges of layer to be stamped on, lining up outer edges of strips with edges of layer:
Add last two strips along top and bottom of layer as shown, lining up outer edges of of strips with outer edges of layer:
Ink brayer in color of choice (for this sample I used Always Artichoke). Roll brayer over cardstock layer in the open area left inside the scrap paper strips. Roll brayer back and forth, over edges of scrap paper, adding more ink to brayer as needed. You will probably need to brayer up and down, then back and forth to get smooth, even coverage.
When you are done with the brayer, remove the scrap paper strips to reveal the inked rectangle. Stamp desired images on this inked area. I used the leaf stamps from "French Foliage" in Early Espresso ink, then added the "splat" image from "French Foliage" with more Always Artichoke ink. The "gratitude" phrase is from "Day of Gratitude" stamp set.
You really can't see it in the photo, but I finished off this card with a light spritzing of shimmer spray I created by mixing 91% rubbing alcohol with the "Gold Glimmer" Smooch Spritz in a travel-size spray bottle!
