Card # 2….

For our 2nd card in our Technique Class – “Faux Mother of Pearl“, I wanted to show the ladies that you could use this technique to create a male’s card.  The Stamp Set – French Foliage is one of my favourite & find myself turning to this set time & time again to create all sorts of projects.
Along with this technique, we did a little sponging using our Brayer & Sponges, as well the Technique – Rock & Roll.  What fun!!!!!

Brayering – Basic

G’Day Stampers,
I have a small wee Tutorial/Technique to share with you today
Brayering – Basic
Supplies –
Stamp Set
Scrap Paper
Instructions –
  1. Ink Brayer with ink, ensuring you roll in one direction, usually away from you
  2. If required, repeat until roller is fully inked
  3. Ensuring scrap paper is under your cardstock, roll Brayer onto your card
  4. Decorate & complete Card
Tip –
  • Do not roll Brayer back & forth on ink pad, as you will be only inkin 1/4 of your surface
  • Scrap paper is required as you will be rolling off both ends/sides of your cardstock
Very easy simple technique!
Until next time, have a practice
