Stamping Techniques 101 – Sponging

Hello and welcome to another Stamping Techniques 101 International Blog Hop ..

This month we are sharing quick and easy ways with Sponging.  Sponging adds so much to your projects and can give them lots of depth.

For today’s card I’ve actually made two cards for you – one without sponging and then another with some sponging added so you can see the difference.

Without Sponging …

I’ve used the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set and stamped the Dragonflies in Island Indigo, then the leaves in Bermuda Bay. Lastly I stamped the speckle dots in Pool Party.  The sentiment is stamped inside the frame and adhered with Dimensionals with a little bit of Gold Metallic thread behind.   That Gold Metallic Thread – as much as I loathe it – really does pop on this card.

Now to add some sponging …

Just by adding some sponging its now given this card more depth and what looks like another layer.

Now today I’m off to the city (Sydney) for On Stage and I’m really looking forward to seeing some dear demonstrator friends and getting my hands on the new Annual Catalogue!

Dont forget you can register early for the catalogue for just $7.75 which includes shipping so it’s sorta like getting the catalogue for free and just paying the postage.  Anyone who orders early will receive a thank you card from me plus a voucher to use on their first order when the Catalogue goes live in June.
