How to Use a Sponge Brayer for Card Making

20190712_093027

Sponge Brayers #141714 add fast, FUN COLOR to your card making!! Load the brayer with ink by rolling in ONE DIRECTION across your ink pad. These bright, happy colors are Mango Melody and Poppy Parade. Next roll across your Whisper White Card Stock by starting OFF the edge and ENDING off the end. BLENDING is so easy by simply rolling over one color with another color. Two handles and FOUR sponges come in a set. Just squish under running tap water to clean and air dry.
