Bouncing Brayer Rocks!

Here's a technique we did at our Hostess club! We used a brayer, not quite navy classic ink, and glossy card stock. You ink your brayer and "bounce" or stroke the brayer while turning the card stock to create this cool star effect! Then we stamped the focal image using Stazon ink.
Quite fun!

Interesting technique. Don't use the brayer too much; guess I'll have to pull it out and ink it up. I'm a new follower from stampin' connection (#247 on the list). Stop by my blog for a visit.
