I had no idea that a little rubber ink roller was called a brayer.
Last Fall at the scrapbooking retreat one of the gals had a whole box of “stuff” that she was giving away. My daughter Jen grabbed the little roller thingy and said “Here Mom you need this.” She explained that it works well to ink larger stamps.
Last week in Far Guys birthday package there were several gifts for me and a note saying “Dad’s birthday but you got gifts. How does that work?” The sunflower stamp was large enough that I could try out the brayer to ink the larger stamp. (The cling stamp gets mounted on an acrylic block prior to stamping.) Remember my word for 2018 is explore.
So I stamped a bunch of sunflowers on water color paper and will have fun coloring them…they are in my work
play box on my desk.
I did get a wild hair…looking for a particular stamp…found one and ordered it…the brayer may come in handy on that one too. Many hours can be spent just exploring new stamps...
It snowed here…about 5 inches. More snow is forecast. Right now we have 9 inches at the snow stick. With more to come today.
Far Guy is getting a little stronger everyday. Yesterday he fed the birds and walked Chance outside and then walked around and around indoors.
