Hello! Another month gone by and we are in March! Holy smokes.
Being the 3rd of the month means that we have a brand new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. Don't forget that our sketch challenge went live on the 1st so you may even like to combine the two!
Here is our theme for this month -
We would like you to use sponging on your cards. Don't forget that this is a Clean and Simple Challenge.
Here is my card
I started my masking off my panel as I only wanted to sponge ink into the top part.
I have used Distress Inks for this one - Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn, Dusty Concord and Mustard Seed. Once my panel was dry I stamped my grunge stamp with white Stazon ink.
Then I created another panel. Firstly, I used the same grunge stamp and white embossed the panel. Then I used Dusty Concord/Salty Ocean, Festive Berries/Pickled Raspberry and Mustard Seed/Mowed Lawn. Then I die cut my butterflies. Thinking they needed something a little extra, I inked up my En Francais stamp in black and inked over the top of the butterflies.
I scored two lines below my inking and stamped a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Greetings set from IBS.
Lastly, I popped up my butterflies using dimensionals.
I love how the colours ended up being bright and vibrant.
Ok! Over to you now. I hope you will play along this month. Don't forget to link up at the FORUM to be in the draw to win a mystery prize!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Mixed Media Challenge - Hints of Spring
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Less Is More - This makes me happy (butterflies and lots of colour!)
Thanks so much for looking xx
