I don’t know about you, but I find it seriously frustrating when I can’t grab the exact color of fancy background paper that I need for a project. Good news if you’re like me though – the solution to this problem is actually pretty simple… Sponge Brayers!
With a Sponge Brayer and a gorgeous printed paper, I can create whatever color I need to match my Stampin’ Up! project. The Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper is printed with a pretty set of foiled metallic images – so when you brayer over the paper, the foiled printing doesn’t pick up ink, while the background becomes whatever color I’ve chosen.
For this card featuring the Hearts Come Home stamp set and the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies (one of the cards you’ll make with my October Stamps in the Mail Club kit), I really wanted a softer background than stark white. So by using a Sponge Brayer to tint the background paper, I created a softer layer for my card.
Haven’t used Sponge Brayers yet? You’re missing out! I’ll give you some tips and tricks for this universal tool in the video tutorial below.
