I used Ranger Ink Adirondack Popsicle Orange dye ink stamp pad to ink up my brayer . . . rolled off the excess ink on a piece of scrap paper . . . LIGHTLY brayered HORIZONTALLY on my glossy white Kromekote cardstock . . . after cleaning my brayer . . . I inked up my brayer with Adirondack Raspberry . . . again, rolled off the excess ink on a piece of scrap paper . . . LIGHTLY brayered VERTICALLY on my cardstock . . . scraped the edges with the Raspberry stamp pad . . . stamped the bird in Raspberry and Orange . . . stamped the flourish from the Michelle Ward Collection from Stampington in Raspberry . . . let dry or heat set . . . used a non-stick static pad on the card . . . embossed the bird, dragonfly, butterfly, and words with Black ColorBox pigment ink and black embossing powder . . .
