Silhouette Witch using a DIY "Mini Roller Brayer" or "Roltap" tool



Hello Dear Stamper Friends:
Here Bibiana...
Well this whole post came to life thanks to Lindsay...she posted below (On Monday July 22nd) a card and a video on how to make a background card using the "Can Can Show Girls" stamp.

I discovered this "new" tool called "Roltap", thanks to the video that she posted here in this blog...

After seeing her video I had to have right away that tool, but unfortunately as she pointed out later in another video it turns out that this "new" tool, was an "oldie" and that it is a discontinued item:(

So following some of her suggestions, I ran to Michael's and made my own version.
I created my own "Mini Roller Brayer" Or "Roltap" tool...
here it is my take...
To view the complete tutorial on how to make this tool and see the new tool that I discovered that works like the "Roltap" visit my blog HERE ...


I decided to make a card, of course, using this new "mini brayer" or "Roltap" tool! and what better than a card for Halloween...

I used this fun "Silhouette Witch" stamp that "Lost Coast Designs" has in the Silhouette section of the their online catalogue  to make this fun background card in order to showcase how the "mini Roller Brayer" works...


I first did my background in 3 different color inks (black, gray: "London Fog: Memento ink"  and "Pumice: distress ink By Tim Holtz")...
If you prefer straight lines I guess you can use a ruler...but I do not mind the crooked lines... it goes fast, less that 3 min...and I think that's the charm of the background.
I die cut it with a "Spellbinders" label  3 die.


Then I stamped a 2nd panel using a large Background "Three Branches" stamp from "Lost Coast Designs" and I used a "leaf wheel" on the corners...just to use both "new" tools in my card.

I decided to make a gingham pattern and the broom has several layers to add some dimension...



Hope you will get inspired as I was, ...THANK YOU, Lindsay!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time,
