Episode 8 of “Why Did I Buy This?”highlighted a simple yet very versatile product: Sponge Brayers. Brayers were designed for techniques! You’ll see in the projects I showcased in my Facebook Live, there are a number of techniques!
Take a look at the 5 different projects I shared in the live. For details on how these were made, be sure to tune into Episode 8 on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/inkythumbs
Each of these projects uses greetings from the Share Sunshine PDF – a fundraiser sponsored by Stampin’ Up! with 100% of the money going to organizations that support Covid-19 relief! You can automatically download the PDF for $12 USD by clicking here.

I just love this last project! It’s using a technique called “Joseph’s Coat.” Be sure to watch the video to see how I did this!
I hope this inspires you to pull out your Sponge Brayer and make some projects! If you don’t have a Sponge Brayer, you can visit my store to buy one!
