M is for Mesh Direct

This versatile technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter is different from the Brayered Mesh technique.
Tape piece of plastic mesh (from a produce bag) to a craft sheet or scrap paper on three sides, keeping mesh taut. Slip card stock under the mesh and tape fourth side.
 Use sponge brayer to ink card stock through the mesh. I found my paper wanted to move, so needed to hold down one corner while using the brayer. Use rainbow pad or several colors from different ink pads.
 Remove card stock from under the mesh. Look for different sizes of mesh and experiment with different color combinations.
