Just a note ...

This is my second post today, so if you're looking for my
Sassy Studio Designs post please scroll down. ;o)

I love learning new techniques, and the challenge this week at Just Us Girls (#132) has a super cool technique challenge that I just had to try!  The technique is called "Sponging a Layer" and you can learn more about it here. I combined the technique with the Scrapbook & Cards Color Suite Challenge for April

I'm going to say this now ... I LOVE IT ... the results are super awesome. 

Have a look ...
After I made my first card (above), I had so much fun that I had to make some more ...



Last month the hubby asked me to make a set of cards for a prize they will give out for the Scavenger Hunt at his Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA in June.  I showed these to my husband, and he thought that I adhered ribbon to my card. When I told him it was all 1-layer he was shocked, and he really loved them.  I told him that I will be make a set of 12 cards using this technique with different flowers and colors. 

Here are the inspiration photos ...


Since I used my DeNami stamps for this challenge, I'm also submitting them for the current DeNami Theme Challenge #10.

Until next time ... Enjoy!

Products used ... G109 Single Daisy, D75 Small Daisy Bloom & TR16 All Occasion Sentiment Stamp Set from DeNami Design, Neenah Solar White Cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Copic Markers, Scrap Paper and a Dauber.

Awesome!!! I used the same technique although I didn't think to call it "sponging a layer" LOL but that is what I did. Although I find the post it labels the best for that type of masking so the card doesn't move. Plus I can cut out an image to mask it as I did with my pirate chickie. I love this technique and it comes in handy often even on multiple layer cards. :) Great job!!
