Thinking of you ...

I have another set of cards I created using the technique for the current Just Us Girls Technique Challenge (#132), which is called Sponging a Layer.  I combined the technique challenge with two other challenges for this set.  We have the Clean & Simple Sketch #186 and CAS-ual Friday's Opposites Attract (#48).

So here goes ...
 
I once again went 1-layer, but instead of having the butterflies disappear like I did with my last set I kept the full image. 

I also made all four of the cards identical this time. Only one more set to complete the dozen cards for my husband.

Now for the inspirational photos ...




This technique is so easy that I created these cards while watching TV with the husband last night.  Total time for all four cards was only an hour.

Until next time ... Enjoy!

Products used ... Whimsical Wishes Make it Amazing Stamp Set from Taylored Expressions, Neenah Solar White cardstock, Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Marker B02 (Robin's Egg Blue), Scrap Paper, and a Dauber.

What striking colours and I love the sponging layer Ruza. I think I am going to have to give this a try. The colours all work well together. All the best, regards Meighan
