Fix It Friday, Sponging
Monday was Fill Your Card box with Sympathy cards, cards I hate to have to send, but find I am sending out more and more as time goes by. This card used a sponging technique.
1. Punch a hole in the center of 1/4 piece of card stock the size you want. I used the 1 3/4 inch punch. This piece of card stock will be your template for sponging.
2. Place the template at the top of the card and sponge the inside of the circle. I used Cajun Craze.
3. Move the circle to different parts of the card front and use a different colored sponge each time. I used Marina Mist and Old Olive for my other colors.
4. Finish the card with a saying, and another image stamped on top of the sponged area. I stamped one of the leaf images from the stamp set Gently Falling, and the saying So Sorry.
This card was a swap I must have received a while ago because the saying is from a retired set, so I replaced the saying with one from the So Sorry stamp set.
The stamp set Gently Falling is one of the 25 stamps on sale for $25 until October 28th. It is one of my favorites sets that I use a lot.
