Simple Stamping Techniques Blog Hop - Brayering



Hello and welcome to another Simple Stamping Techniques Blog Hop. 
Today we are hopping with the Brayer Technique - so many great techniques can be achieved with the brayer, but as we are talking "simple", I'm going to show you a technique that is creative and simple to do.
You simply need  Sponge Brayers , an Embossing Folder of your choice and of course inks and paper. 



I started by inking up a couple of brayers in a variety of colours and rolling them randomly onto the embossing folder.
Hint: start with your lightest colour first and lay down most of this colour. Then go ahead and brayer 2 or more other colours to create an interesting background. Remember that the colours are somewhat transparent so they will show through each other a little.

 


I used the Stampin' Up! inks Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay for the background before running the embossing folder through the Big Shot. I then brayered Highland Heather to pick up the texture high points.


I finished the card with images from Rooted In Nature by Stampin' Up! The images are placed over a melon Mambo circle that has been die cut with a Stitched Circle die.
The card front is matted onto Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo card.


I hope you will give the Sponge Brayer from Stampin' Up! a try. It gives you a variety of finishes and you can see more ideas by following along with the blog hop.

    1. The backgrounds are lots of fun and somewhat serendipitous so it is always exciting to see what will happen. Glad you like the card Libby and thank you for your comment.
