brayered backgrounds + color crush blog hop


Welcome to The Stamp Market's Color Crush blog hop!!! I'm so happy you are here to talk about TSM's yummy new goodies! Specifically let's talk about inks and brayered backgrounds!

You should be arriving from my sweet friend Carissa's blog (and you can find the whole hop list over on the The Stamp Market's blog).
The Stamp Market ink pads are a juicy but firm foam that provide a perfectly crisp impression and the colors are bananas! And bananas is good! 
The pads are great for not only stamping but also direct to paper techniques and creating brayered backgrounds like I used for my cards. Today I'm created abstract, tie-dye-ish backgrounds with 3 colors...

Here's a quick video of the brayered background technique...

To turn my inked panels into cards, I added some positive & negative die cuts and some enamel dots (the supplies are listed below). And I kept all additions black & white so those gorgeous pinks would still pop!



The next stop on our hop is the amazing Laura Bassen's colorful blog! I'm headed there too because I can't wait to see what she created!!!

And you can see the whole Color Crush collection HERE!


Thanks so much for stopping by and hugs!
Carly

Love the abstract look for these cards! And that bloom cover die looks like a must-have.

Love those backgrounds! I had forgotten all about using a brayer for that, but I love the look it creates.

Love that ink color with the black flowers! Very cool, thanks for sharing your brayer tips - I don't own a brayer yet but that was cool how you roll off onto your mat before going to the paper :)
