Brayer Technique

I love going to thrift shops. I especially love it when I find a great "deal" on craft supplies.
I came across a Clear 12 x 12 plastic case filled with goodies. All for $2.99. The case was sealed with tape so I couldnt open it up to look inside at all the goodies.(But) Looking through the plastic container and turning it upside down etc....I did see some ribbon, paint brushes, thread, and a Brayer!!!!  I bought it. The brayer was still in the original package, unopened!!! New paint brushes too.  So much "stuff" inside, well worth the $2.99.

Here is a cool technique to use with the Brayer



 Heat emboss your chosen images on Glossy White card stock using VersaMark ink and Clear Stampin' Emboss powder. Bold images work best for this technique.

 Ink your brayer with a light color of ink, and bray your card stock.

 Use a sticky note or scrap paper cut to desired shapes and sizes to cover portions of your card stock.

 Ink your brayer with a darker color of ink, and bray your card stock again.

 Repeat process if extra layers are desired.

 Remove paper scraps and wipe embossed images to remove excess ink.
