First time Using a Brayer

I was suppose to take this brayer class at a local craft store
a couple of weeks ago but unfortunately I could not make it due to illness
However, I still got to purchase the Stampscapes Rubber Stamps 
Now, this is the first time I have used the brayer and
WOW I am amazed, thankfully I had instructions on the colours
of inks to use, although they were not the same brand that I had I tryed to
match the colours with what I had using my CTMH inks.

I used Taffy, Sunny yellow and Blush for the sky and
Star Spangled Blue, Crystal Blue, Breeze and Hydrangea for the water and stones
with India Ink Archival and Fade Resistant Ink for the images.
