Brayer Resist Medallion Card

I have been waiting for AGES to be able to share this card. I designed it nearly a month ago but had to wait till today to show it to you as I presented at the Auckland Stampin' Up! Regional Training for demonstrators as a WOW presentation. Firstly I was thrilled to be asked - only two of us out of the 60+ guests were ask, and even more flattered that the 'powers that be' thought it was good enough to present.

What I did to create it was cover the Medallion stamp with versamark, then spritzed Basic Grey and Going Grey then stamped it on to the card and part on the envelope. I covered this with clear embossing powder and heat set it with a heat tool.

Then I brayered Going Grey over the embossed images, and wiped over Medallion image with a tissue or paper towel to remove any ink on the shiny image. I tore the edges of this to reveal the white core to age it up. I inked up the flap on the envelope too.

I layered it up with a stamped image from the Rustic Rooster (hostess set) set and then on to a Basic Black card. A bit of taffeta Basic Grey ribbon and a salutation from Teeny Tiny Tags on some scraps and its done.

I have made a few variations of this and I will share them over the next few days.



  1. This card is so cool, Julia - and so much better for seeing a live demonstration of it today. You were awesome! Thanks for the 'refresher' above - I'll be making one of these this week.

  2. This is a fantastic technique Julia and one I will certainly trying too. You go girl! Wish i was there!

  3. Yay, you included the instructions here, I loved your presentation but my brain clearly didn't take everything in!

  4. I wasn't there, but thanks for sharing it looks so cool I will be having a go too.x

  5. Lovely result Julia. I can understand why is was a WOW project.

    Love what you have done with the envelope as well.


  6. Loved your presentation Julia, your card is awesome.
