Simplicity with Sponging!


Here's another quick card I made with a masked and sponged background. I was really inspired to make some more cards like this after seeing some of the cards made by Heather T. The technique brings me back to when I first started stamping, but for some reason it feels fresh and new again too! Who knows?? But I like it!


I used the tree from the Thoughts & Prayers set (love that set!) and the thank you is from the Just Believe set. The sponging is done in So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie and a little Regal Rose. The stamping is done in Early Espresso.

I know I still love to make cards with lots of texture, layers, bling and all that jazz, but it's so cool to know that you can make a beautiful card with just a half sheet of cardstock, a couple stamps, some sponges and a few colors of ink!


Happy Monday,


Julie

It is a simple but effective technique. I keep coming back to it again and again. I'm glad my card jogged your memory.
