Clean and simple sponging

November 23, 2009 at 12:16 pm 7 comments

I love this technique not only because it is easy to do, but with the right color combination it will really make your cards pop!

I started by masking off a rectangle on a piece of white cardstock – this was easily done by taking a rectangle nestability and taping it on the cardstock with repositionable tape.

Then, just sponge the area – darker in the corners and work your way lighter in the center.  The colors used here are regal rose and apricot.

Remove the mask, then stamp the image over to one side.  This image is from SU, the sentiment from Flourishes.  They were stamped in razzleberry ink and the card was mounted on razzleberry cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!
