There was a challenge on the stubby stampers yahoo group to use a brayer. I hadn't used mine in forever so I thought I would give it a try.
Here is my first attempt:
I decided it needed a little dressing up so I changed it a bit here:
I did the background with the Kaledicolor Bouquet inkpad by running the brayer on the inkpad. Using glossy cardstock I kept picking the brayer up slightly and moving it around in a bit of a circular motion and keeping the green in almost the same spot and letting the blue move around the outside. The butterflies are peel-off stickers from Magenta. I have no idea if they still make them.
In the first card I just colored the image from stubby stampers with peel-off markers. 
In the second card I stamped the image again and colored the chairs and one pot with copic markers and cut them out and glued them on top. For the small tree on the second card I mixed strawberry flower soft with a bit of sweet pea flower soft and glued it on with diamond glaze. 
Personally I like the second card better but either works well.
Get your brayer out and see what you can create.

What a peaceful scene - I have yet to master that technique with the brayer. Great job.
