Posts Tagged ‘Sponging’

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!

It’s my pleasure to host the 700th Inspiration Challenge (IC700)! Wow! That’s a lot of inspiration. And I chose a place that was a discussion of colors. For my first card, I was inspired by THIS. I love all the blue butterflies.

After coloring & die cutting the butterflies, I sponged the Distress inks onto my white panel, then sprayed it w/ thinned out white acrylic paint. I thought it still needed more, so stamped over the sponged areas w/ the same Distress inks using a splatter bg image.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used for the butterflies.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamps: Brush Butterflies , Splatter Bg
Paper:  Staples 110# white, X-Press It, gray
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versaclair nocturne, Distress inks tumbled glass, evergreen bough, weathered wood, black soot
Accessories:  Rubbernecker stitched rectangles, Fluttering Butterflies , Nested Banner Stitch, Rectangle Stitch Frame , Floral Frame dies, Copic markers, white Posca paint pen

 

My second card is all about shades of gray & black. My moonlit scene was inspired by THIS picture.

After die cutting the birches & grasses out of black, a circle of white & a bg out of gray, I sponged on a little black & gray onto the gray bg.

I used white & lt. gray Prismacolor pencils to add some depth & shading to the moon, birches & grasses.

Here’s the inside.

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC696) this week! And we’re headed to the land down under w/ a site of fab scenery & colorful beach towels. I chose THIS picture for my inspiration. I really liked the black & white pattern w/ just the addition of a green leaf.

 

To make my card, I die cut the wavy frame out of white & again out of the black & white patterned paper then put back the inserts as you see. I had a sponged piece of paper left from last week’s card (here), so I used it to die cut leaves, the larger frame & the Smile word.

Here’s the inside:
