September 12th... Bo Bunny and the rubber brayer

You may ask yourself "self what do you do with that darn thing?" And you may come up empty handed. Well today, with the help of some WONDERFUL Bo Bunny stamps, I will give you a few ideas, if you are new to this. When you are done here go and check out Bo Bunny's new blog. It's full of fun stuff!!!
First off you can start off by inking up your stamp with a clear embossing ink. Stamp your image onto your paper of choice. I chose a pattern here. Then do your embossing powder with your heat gun. Now ink up your brayer, like I did here in black, and roll it back and forth over the image you just embossed. Wipe the ink off the embossed area and there you have it.
You can also use the brayer to ink up large stamps.
Or you can stamp on the brayer itself and roll that onto the paper for a different effect... you could even stamp on it with other colors.

So this is the set that was used today as well as the one someone will win. (just leave your comment before midnight tonight)
