In this months blog hop with the Technique 101 we are sharing cards with sponging on them. Any sponging goes and I am sure that the design team will be sharing lots of ideas on how to get some great effects with your sponges and daubers.
I cut out a rectangle using my paper trimmer and photocopy paper. I used photocopy paper as it is thin and when I sponge over the edge of the cut paper the sponge passes smoothly over it to create a nice crisp sponged line.
By using photocopy paper you can also position the rectangle on your card front and see it is lined up correctly.
I then used Marina Mist Ink and a large sponge and tapped the sponge into the ink and dabbed it off onto the grid paper behind before sponging. Take your time, I move in a circular motion with my sponge and be sure not to let your mask slip.
Once you are happy with your sponged panel, I stamped the umbrella stamp from Weather Together in Black Ink. I then stamped the umbrella again and cut it out so add some dimension. I simply coloured the handle with a night of navy marker pen and added some flowers and pearls from the stamp set.
This stamp set comes with a set of dies but I did not use them for this card, I hand cut the elements.
So now it is time to pop on over to Frenchie’s blog to see what she has made using sponging.
