My advice is, get your daughter to do it, if you have one. It was hurting my hand (carpal tunnel) to rub those lines with a sponge, so I told my dd what colors I wanted & poof! 15 mins later it was finished! Left me more time to create the card I was making!

Did I mention I don't have the sponge attachment? Let me know if that works better. Thanks!

Oh it's so easy! Just roll your brayer (with the sponge/foam roller attached ) directly onto your inkpad, put the plaidmaker stencil where you what it over your paper and roll over it with the brayer several times (making sure to hold your stencil so it doesn't shift) until you have reached the color of stripe you want. You may need to reink your brayer if you want a dark color. Clean your brayer between colors ( and start with the lightest color first) by rolling over scrap paper until you don't see any more color. Put the other stencil over your paper at a 90 degree angle to your first stripe and roll your next color,etc. Voila! Do you understand? Any questions?
Happy Stamping!
Janet

When you say clean brayer does that mean just roll on paper until there is no ink or do you wash it under water??

If you are going from lightest to darkest color, you should be able to clean it by just rolling it numerous times over scrap paper until you can't see any more color when you roll it. If you wash it , you have to get it very dry before you roll the next color. But you could do it that way. It just takes longer and I'm very impatient!!!

my demo taped her plaid maker on a piece of cardboard. Makes it real easy to just flip it up, stick paper under and roll. Makes it easy to wipe off and be done with it, when you are done. Hope that is a good tip for ya!!

When I first used a plaidmaker in a class, the demo had us tuck the corners of the 12x12 cardstock into the slits and use the brayer to fill in the colors. It looked great, but then I noticed that the corners looked funny, so I ended up cutting the cardstock for pieces on cards, rather than using it as a scrapbook page. How do you keep this from happening?
