My brayer class was lots of fun last night. We had a full table. I was going to do it upstairs in my craft room, but the lighting needs some work there. We actually video taped the class...(I haven't seen the video yet,) so lighting was pretty important. Here are a couple of the cards we did. The top one is called "ghost imaging" or resist. We stamped the cirlcles and flowers on glossy paper using the Versamark pad and then brayered over it. It is a fun technique to do because the images appear like "magic!" The other card is called brayered Madras. It is a technique I learned from Pat Hunton (www.patstamps.com) where you brayer in one direction and then turn the paper a quarter turn and brayer over that. It looks really neat in person. I tired a couple different things for the top layer and ended up brayering it and then bouncing the brayer on it in different places to give it a cool look.
I think I'll go watch a few SuperBowl commercials now...they are the best part!

I want to try these two techniques. Love your colors and your cards. Wish I could have been in your class last night or when ever.
