Bouncing Brayer Technique for #TT06

Totally Techniques Website Banner
Welcome to our Totally Techniques Blog Hop where a few of my lovely friends from around the world and I share projects we have all made using the same technique.

This Month we are doing the Bouncing Brayer Technique

The Bouncing Brayer technique we are going to share with you today is showing you a different way that you can use your brayer.  The way I look at it is, the more different ways that I can use a product the better, it makes me feel like I got value for money and that always makes me feel good.  Today we are going to show you how to literally bounce your brayer along your card and create a fun background effect.  Make sure you put down some scrap paper first because things are going to get pretty inky lol, but the good news is a bit of ink never hurt anyone and the end result is pretty cool.
Now onto telling you a little about the project, I wanted to make the magnetic bookmark the main feature so I have kept this card nice and simple.Bouncing Brayer Technique by Patrice
I decided to clear emboss over the top of the brayered card as it brings out the depth of colour and also will seal the bookmark so no ink will transfer into the book.  I then did the bouncing brayer technique on a second piece of card to decorate the back of the bookmark as well, I thought it finished it off perfectly.

The only problem with this card is when you remove the bookmark you will be left with a blank card so remember to stamp the identical image underneath.

Here is a quick video showing you how to do the Bouncing Brayer Technique and also a couple of tips about the bookmark.
