We have tackled the trickiness of brayering before in a cover class but that was using white embossing as a resist.   Once again we are using embossing as a resist but it's black this time and it goes hand in hand with good old masking.  It's surprising the amount of stampers who don't use masking as a technique more often as it gives a really good effect!   I also love how different the brayering looks when done on gloss card stock compared to plain white card stock. 
"Be seen"... (a zetti-style atc, love the colours of this one!  It's on gloss card.)
"Always know"... (this one is on plain card stock.  When you're unsure of
what colours to use, it's always fool-proof to stick with 3 colours that are next to
each other on the colour wheel - this one is Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade and
Scattered Straw - in other words, red, orange and yellow!)

"Gate Keeper"... (gloss card, much lighter colours this time - Stormy Sky, Shaded Lilac
and Scattered Straw.)
"With wild abandon"... (plain card stock - Evergreen Bough, Tumbled Glass and Iced Spruce.)
More to come......  (next time I post I'll be a Nan!!!  My
son and daughter-in-law are expecting a baby girl TOMORROW!!!!!!)

Very cool! What rubber stamps did you use on the Gate Keeper card?

The guy and bats are from Plate #53 Dark Creatures and the fence is from Plate #52 Dark Boundaries, both from Cherry Pie Art Stamps. Great stamps!!!
