Sponging Like Nobody's Business
I am currently on a sponging binge. I can't help it. I love it I love it I love it. This card is nowhere near what I had in mind when I started, but sometimes when you take a path you didn't know existed, you end up with something awesome. Other times you end up in the woods with a bear chasing after you, but not this time!
The colours seem a little weird on my screen, but they're Blackberry Bliss, Pacific Point, and Island Indigo. I started out by sponging the whole 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 sheet and then didn't want to cut it it was so pretty. The tree is from Festival of Trees, as is the sentiment. I've been wanting to make a shaped shaker frame for quite some time and this weekend I FINALLY picked up some mounting foam tape, as well as a gigantic jar of glitter (it's something ridiculous like 24oz). It's just a clear glitter rather than shiny, which is perfect for making it look like a snowdrift!
I already have another card in mind that will incorporate both of these techniques, as well as some trees, so stay tuned!
