I have been having a lot of fun playing around with sponging and sponge-brayering on some cards for an upcoming technique class and was inspired to create this card.

I masked off an area on a piece of Very Vanilla card and sponged Coastal Cabana ink across the lower part of the sponging area.  I added some Bermuda Bay ink across the middle of the sponging area and lastly add some Pacific Point across the top of the sponging area.  I removed the masks and stamped “happy birthday” from the Special Celebration stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I attached the sponged panel to Coastal Cabana card and scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the sailboat image from the Lilypad Lake stamp set three times onto scrap Very Vanilla card.  I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the boats.  I cut out the images with the matching Lakeside Framelits Dies and attached all but one of the “double boat” images to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I sponged Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point card onto the lower left hand corner.  I attached the last “double boat” image over the sponged area.

I love this card.  I love that it makes me feel like i need to rush off to the beach and sit and do nothing but watch the waves and whatever else passes by.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,
