This is how I roll

With a brayer! Last week I taught a class to my friends on brayering techniques. We made 4 cards and now I am a brayer fan! Of course, I am no-where near an expert, but I did get over my initial fear of the brayer, embraced the brayer, and came up with a few must-have tips!

Always use glossy paper
Take the "hard edge" of color off your brayer before you roll
Have fun and experiment with color!! You really cannot mess this up!

Thanks for all the comments on my giveaway, by the way. One thing many of you asked for are tutorials. Well, I am not sure I can ever duplicate the tutorials I see on others sites! I do not even own a video camera! So, we will have to do this the old-fashioned way with pictures and words! I will try to do a tutorial or so every weekend if I can! I will try to get a brayer one today first!
Stamps: SU! Thoughts and Prayers
Inks: SU! Bashful blue, baja breeze, going grey
