Archive for the ‘Sponging’ Category

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS645). So a big congrats to Michelle! She has a lovely gallery & after browsing her entire gallery, I kept coming back to THIS. I kept the Hot Air Balloon theme & layout, but I used dies instead of a stamp, different colors & a shaving cream bg instead of a watercolor bg.
 My version is pretty simple..I sponged a white piece of c/s w/ yellow & orange Distress inks, then die cut one of just the yellow for the outline & the inserts out of the red/orange part. The greeting was white embossed on black & the sky circle is a remnant piece of  shaving cream bg.

Here’s the inside. I used the negatives of the balloon & clouds as a stencil to sponge thru them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The theme for the Free For All Challenge (F4A483) on Splitcoaststampers is Stormy Weather. Looks like my little Miss Frog is caught in a doozy of one. Her mind must be elsewhere because it appears she’s about to struck by lightning!

My card is pretty simple. I stamped the lightning bolt then used a clear glaze pen to fill it in. I figured out quite a while ago that it will resist sponging w/ Distress inks. So after I sponged on the stormy sky colors, they wiped right off my lightning bolt. I masked the ground & sponged it then added some raindrops. I also flicked some water on the bg & blotted it w/ a paper towel to add to the rain look. Miss Froggie was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Patsy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS639) on Splitcoast! She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I liked the blue & yellow color combo & floral theme, so I kept that, but I used different images, different dies & used emboss resist for my bg.

After I stamped & embossed the bg image in white, I sponged on the yellows from the top down & the blues from the bottom up. I wanted the color to show thru so I clear embossed the greeting onto vellum after stamping it w/ dk navy ink. I added a die cut circle frame on top of the vellum & added a layered die cut flower.

Here’s the inside.
