It is a very wet, windy day here in Northern California-A perfect day to create!
This week over a Papertrey Ink's blog-"Capture the Moment," Dawn McVey is challenging everyone to use a sponge stamping technique. If you aren't sure what that entails, she has a great video showing the process. What a fun technique this was, and one I hadn't tried before, so it gave some challenge!
Here is a photo of her card using this technique:
On here card you can see how she variegated the colors on the bird with shades of green and blue.
Here is my finished card:
I used the stamp and die set-"Fresh Floral Wrap Ups."
On my card I chose to do this technique on the wrap around the flowers, using Hibiscus Burst and Berry Sorbet and Classic Kraft. On the stems of the twigs in the floral arrangement, I used New Leaf and Classic Kraft. The flowers are Aqua Mist.
Here is a close-up--
It was a fun challenge, and a technique I will use in the future! Make sure you check it out and join in the fun!
Have a great week-
