Brayer with Stampin’ Spots

Now that we no longer have a multi-coloured ink pad in the catalogue, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this. I don’t know why I did not think of it before, and if it is old hat to you, then I apologise!

Choose your 4 Stampin’ Spots to match your desired card colour. The wonderful thing about this technique is that you can match your brayering to your cardstock, and you can create a million different brayered combinations, depending on your mood.

Ink the brayer with four Stampin’ Spots, starting from the one end of the brayer, working your way to the other end, until you have your four chosen colours in stripes along the brayer.

My chosen colours are from the Rich Regals set, Regal Rose, Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue and So Saffron. Once you are happy with the colours on the brayer, roll it across your piece of gloss card. Roll back and forth really quickly for the best result.

Stamp over the top with your desired image, inked with Stazon. Layer on matching cardstock.

  4. Absolutely brilliant idea Roz. How is it that such a simple solution can evade so many of us for so long??

  5. Thanks for a great solution Roz. Just wondered if you can temporarily tape the spots together to use like the spectrum pads or if it is easier to ink the brayer with them individually?
    One tip I found with brayering is to make sure you do the last few strokes in one direction only and that makes the colours more even and glosses the card up as well.
    PS Love the blog!!!
