I inked up the brayer using my Crumb Cake ink pad. I started off the Very Vanilla card stock and gradually covered the whole piece. I used the Baja Breeze ink, starting at the bottom of the Vanilla card stock, and gradually worked my way up from the bottom. It gave the card a worn, antiqued look, I think. The stamp is the Medallion background from Stampin'Up!, and it is inked in Crumb Cake, as is the greeting from Thank You Kindly. I used my paper piercing tool to poke a hole for my Antique Brad, and finished the piece by mixing a little shimmer paint into a mister with alcohol. (I had a hard time photographing that detail!)

Baker's tip: Make sure your brayer is completely covered with ink by pressing firmly on the ink pad and only rolling in one direction. The brayer can easily be cleaned with a baby wipe in between colors.
