Archive for the ‘Sponging’ Category

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC745), we are going to The Gray Muse. They have a lot of fun pins & supplies but I found my inspiration on their blog w/ THIS picture. 

My card is pretty CAS. I masked off above & below the strip & sponged on a few colors of pink & blue the stamped the greeting & the flowers. I used a clear Wink of Stella on the flowers. It’s hard to see here but it adds a nice sparkle in real life. A few clear sequins were added to finish.

For my 3rd week as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge (CC775), we have a lavender, purple & mint green color combo w/ the dessert option of making a winter card. Since it’s been below freezing all day here & lows in the mid teens, I think it feels pretty much like this poor bear & his little bird friend look. 

After coloring the bear in the tree, I added the cute little bird (from another winter image) on one of the branches. It was good thing the SU neutrals are allowed, because I made liberal use of the browns, grays & merlot colors! For the bg, I die cut some stitched hills out of scratch paper & used them to sponge in the snow hills & purple/lavender sky. 

After it was sponged, I dry embossed it w/ a snowfall folder & added stickles to the snow. I used the purple inks to sponge the greeting die cut.

Here are the Copics I used, You can see by all the different greens & blue greens, I had to work to get that mint color for the hat & scarf. The purple shades were used just on the bg of the image circle. I didn’t feel like cutting a mask, lol, so I just used the Copics to mimic the sponging I did on the lg background.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC736) on Splitcoast, we’re headed to a scrapbooking blog called Artsy Albums. There were a bunch I was inspired by but THIS one really stuck with me.

I knew I had a cute little Ferris wheel die & that it would be perfect! I die cut it in lt & dk grey sparkle c/s & the little buckets in several colors & put it all together. I used a tiny heart punch on all the many colored hearts. I had a left over piece of teal dp that I used for the lower layer behind the main panel & on the pink, I sponged a slightly darker pink ink thru a stencil for a little pattern. The cute little clouds were stamped & shaded slightly & the greeting was stamped w/ a dk grey ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
