Brayer Resist Technique

These skeeters are inviting you to dinner! Wanna come? Having lived in several places that were well known for having the "biggest" mosquitos, I was excited about the Under the Stars stamp set and the coordinating Skeeters wheel. While I was planning what type of card to create, I thought "when are skeeters known to appear most often? At Night!" So to get the evening sky look, I thought the brayer resist technique would be perfect to use.

Roll the Skeeters Wheel over Versamark Ink Pad.
Roll stamp wheel across glossy card stock (reink wheel in between rows).
Ink up Brayer by rolling over Not Quite Navy Ink Pad.
Starting off the edge of the glossy card stock, roll brayer repeatedly back and forth--reinking brayer as many times as needed to reach desired color intensity.

Give it a try!
