Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’


It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS741) this week! So a big congrats to Heather, the newest FS. She has a beautiful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout & green (because I LOVE greens), but used different images & dies & made my card a floral instead of a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my card, after stamping, coloring & die cutting the poppies, I did the stems & leaves & fussy cut them to add them to my white circle. The smaller bg was sponged w/ the lime greens & a little teal on the ends. The larger bg is one I made a while back w/ a die cut & some Brushos, but I wasn’t crazy how it looked alone. But it worked great behind my sponged layer.
Here’s how it looked by itself. See? Nothing to write home about. I took some die cut leaves to use as a mask, then sprinkled the Brushos & spritzed w/ water.

I put the sponged panel into my Misti & stamped w/ the Versaclair then put all my layers together & added a few gems.

Here are the Copics I used for the poppies:

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC802), we’re headed to a Paper Mache Pinterest Board, where I saw a fox sculpture but for the life of me, I can’t find it now. So I’ll use THIS for my inspiration.

For my cute pair of foxes, I stamped them & the tiny mouse onto watercolor paper, stamped w/ the Versaclair then used watercolors to color them in & die cut w/ their matching dies. The ground was sponged w/ a couple of the green Color Fuse inks then the stems & flowers stamps on top. The half tree & tiny spring leaves were die cut & added along w/ the greeting.

A big congrats to Francine, the newest Featured Stamper (FS738)! She has a fab gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the die word cut off at the bottom, but used different dies, different colors & made mine a birthday card.

I made a similar card, w/ the die cut bottom like this, a long time ago & liked the look, so I was immediately drawn to that in Francine’s card. For my version, I die cut the 2 white panels; on the smaller one, I also die cut the bottom using the shadow part of the word die, then put it back. On the larger bg, I sponged just a little color at the bottom, then used a spritzer tool & Copics to spray the color onto it. Not as smooth as an airbrush system, but it will do. Then the stars bg was stamped in some of the same hot pink colors over this bg. I also put a white Posca pen into the spritzer tool & misted it, too. I did the same on the die cut Birthday, using the blue Copics. I added a star border die cut & added some stickles to it for a little sparkle.

These are the Copics I used to spritz on the color.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
