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.
