That was how I felt too! I think the little 'flick' of the brayer as you come off the card makes all the difference. It puts the 'edge' of the ink in a different place each time, so less likelihood of lines. I realised what she meant when I rolled my brayer off onto scrap paper- when you roll the whole length of the brayer off, you can see where the majority of the ink came off, the the colour becomes lighter- with a sharp line at that point, so I could see what she meant about the flick to put that in a different place each time, and why 'back & forward' is a bad idea,lol. It really does help when someone gives you all those little tips, as well as shows you i think. Good luck with the brayering later. And save anything that doesn't come out perfect- I found lots of pieces are retrievable with the right image in the right place!
