Totally Techniques: Sponging Technique

This is a super fun blog hop....it's Sponging!!!!!  It's a messy technique (LOL), but as you continue through the hop you'll see what type of amazing projects you can make using the Sponging Technique.

This card can be done in 10 minutes or less, but may take a little longer to dry!!!  I used the Timeless Elegance designer paper, rose pattern, and then used the following inks:

Then I used Dazzling Details to add some bling.  Then also used Natural Elements phrase "Thanks" and coated it with White Craft Ink (using a stamping sponge).  These elements take some time to dry! lol.

The other thing I did was slant the piece of Whisper White yardstick to try and make the sponging pop and to break up the darkness, although I love how the sponged colors all came together, and to compliment the "Thanks" greeting.

Here's a special contribution from my darling daughter, Michaela (age 9).

Thanks ladies for visiting and commenting. I was trying to think of what other elements to add to the card w/o taking away from the patterned roses and sponging and glitter. I loved how the colors came out and thought Ribbon may cover too much. Anyway....hoping they still looked nice :D

Gorgeous card Heather, what a great idea sponging the designer paper, it really makes the flower pop. Looks like Michaela takes after her talented Mum, she has done a wonderful job.
