Brayer Bash

 I am starting up a technique club, which for me, might be something like being a long-term substitute teacher.  I have to figure out the technique I'm going to be teaching, and then just stay one class ahead of my students.  I decided to pull out my brayer and see what I could do with it.
I inked up the brayer using my Crumb Cake ink pad.  I started off the Very Vanilla card stock and gradually covered the whole piece.  I used the Baja Breeze ink, starting at the bottom of the Vanilla card stock,  and gradually worked my way up from the bottom.  It gave the card a worn, antiqued look, I think.  The stamp is the Medallion background from Stampin'Up!, and it is inked in Crumb Cake, as is the greeting from Thank You Kindly.  I used my paper piercing tool to poke a hole for my Antique Brad, and finished the piece by mixing a little shimmer paint into a mister with alcohol.  (I had a hard time photographing that detail!)

Baja Breeze card base
Soft Suede cut to 5 7/8" by 4 1/8"
Very Vanilla cut to 5 1/4" by 4"

Baker's tip: Make sure your brayer is completely covered with ink by pressing firmly on the ink pad and only rolling in one direction.  The brayer can easily be cleaned with a baby wipe in between colors.
