Mono Printing with a brayer

I thought with all the talk of mono printing I'd show one of  the ways I like to make backgrounds

Ink up your brayer 50-50 with two colour inks ( or use a big and juice/ kalidacolour pad ) here I have used eggplant and lettuce.

Roll the brayer back and forth on a clear acrylic block this will blend the 2 colours and spritz with water or a water and mica mix the amount of water will depend on how absorbent your paper or card is .

Next stamp it onto your card. Now you have a unique background for stamping on or die cutting

That is brilliant Von, do you know Aimee bought me a brayer about 2 years ago and i haven't used it yet, maybe this will spur me on to make some background papers, Hope you had a good weekend Lou x

Thanks Von I have a brayer that's been a bit redundant . So I guess I'd better get on a ROLL and have a go .
