First attempt!!

Good evening ladies.
A quick post tonight as I didnt want to leave it so long again before updating.
Today I have had a go at brayering. Some of the cards I see look so wonderful and I want to give them a go but before going out and buying all the 'stuff' I had a borrow from my darling mum to see how I got on. I was the first one to use her 'splodge mat' and have now put one on my Christmas list!!
I have a few lines showing on here but have worked out where I went wrong. It still looks ok though and with a bit of liquid pearls, some glamour dust and then stickles round the edge it came together quite well. 
This is a close up so you can see the liquid pearls and glamour dust.
I've also been making some Thanksgiving cards which I did some brayering on and will show those once they are completed.
Please feel free to leave any comments or handy hints for future work.
Happy crafting
