  1. Step 1

    Ink up your brayer with dye ink and start rolling it over your glossy cardstock.

  2. Step 2

    Continue to do so until your cardstock is evenly colored.

  3. Step 3

    Light your candle. Hold glossy side of cardstock over the candle, so that the flame touches it. Move the cardstock around quickly.

    WARNING: Be careful! The edges of the cardstock will catch fire easily.

  4. Step 4

    Take your stamp and press it onto the soot covered cardstock.

    NOTE: Don't touch the soot-covered part with your fingers, or you will have fingerprints. The soot comes off easily.

  5. Step 5

    Spray your image with acrylic sealer to prevent smudging.

  6. Step 6

    Finish your card.


    Go color crazy!
    Brayer your cardstock with a spectrum pad for a completely different look.
