Masking and Sponging

July 2, 2018

I am still loving playing around with sponging techniques and this one again uses the Lilypad Lake stamp set.  I created a large mask by cutting the largest of the circles from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies from some scrap card.  I used some repositional glue to attach it to Very Vanilla card.  I punched a 3/4″ circle from a Post-it-Note and placed it so that the 3/4″ “hole” was sitting in the top part of the circle.  I sponged Calypso Coral ink lightly inside the 3/4″ circle.  I removed the mask and masked across the top of the circle.  I sponged Balmy Blue ink into the lower part of the circle.   I removed the mask and placed a 3/4″ circle over the area where I had sponged the Calypso Coral ink.  I covered the Balmy Blue inked area and sponged So Saffron ink across the rest of the circle.  I removed the 3/4″ circle and sponged So Saffron ink lightly across the Calypso Coral circle.   I removed all of the masks and stamped the greeting from the Lilypad Lake stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the sponged card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The sponged card is attached to Balmy Blue card and then scored and folded Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the crane image from the Lilypad Lake stamp set onto scrap Very Vanilla card using Basic Gray ink and cut it out using the matching Lakeside Framelits Dies.  I also cut Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz card using the reed framelit from the Lakeside Framelits Dies.  I attached the reeds inside the sponged circle and the crane over the top using mini dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I cut reeds from Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam card and attached them to the lower left hand corner.

Another card I am really happy with.  I just love it when a card comes together just the way I had imagined, don’t you?

bye for now,
