Bouncing Brayer Technique

Ok I know many people have a Brayer and might not know what to do with it.

Supplies needed:
Kaleidacolor ink pad
Brayer with rubber attachment
Neutral Cardstock
Solid Stamps
8.5 x 5.5 piece of cardstock for the card base
Paper Trimmer
Additonal Cardstock
Embellishments of Choice

Step 1:
Push the palette of the Kalediacolor pad together and ink the brayer

Step 2:
Bounce (don’t roll) the brayer on neutral cardstock, making sure to keep one end of the brayer at the center of the cardstock. Continue to bounce brayer on cardstock while rotating cardstock with free hand. Re-ink brayer as needed.

Step 3:
Depending upon how much “white space” is desired, either stop here or keep bouncing brayer around cardstock adding ink. Here, no white space was wanted, so the cardstock was rotated and ink applied until all white space was filled with color.

Step 4:
Stamp focal images

Step 5:
Trim, embellish and finish card!
