Sponged Wetlands

Ever wonder why you say you'll do something then ask yourself later "Why did I do that?!  That's me with today's card! lol  Yup, I told my upline that I'd do a demo at our monthly meeting.  Actually I didn't mind it a bit. :)  I love sponging on my cards and knew I would want to do some sort of sponging.  At first I thought I'd do flowers of some sort, but since I didn't want to cut any flowers out and love the Wetlands stamp set I went with that.  I used this week's Color Throwdown challenge for my colors.  I took one look at them and liked what I saw. :)   I did have to change a couple of colors since I didn't have them, but got as close as I could.  Well, after I finished my sample card I thought maybe we should all give it a try at the meeting!  Sure, why not?!  I emailed my upline and she said sure.  I must say they did a great job on their cards!  They all looked different (just like my samples below), but that's what making cards is all about. :)  Wish I had brought my camera to take pics of all of them.  

This was the first card I made...

This was a second sample so we weren't all trying to look at one card... 

 And this is the one I made as we were working together...

  3. Your cards are breath taking!!! I really love them all.

  4. Gorgeous!! Fabulous use of the colors!! Thxs for joining us at CTD!!

  5. Your sponging of these colors turned out beautifully! Love these cards! So happy you were able to play along with us at Color Throwdown!

  6. Beautiful. How do you get such smooth coverage sponging on whisper white? Yes, do a video.

    1. Hi, Pat. Thanks...glad you like my sponging. :) When I sponged this card I did a lot of dragging, swirling and little masking. I know, sounds strange, but that's how I did it. I did make a video, but could never get it to upload. If I get a chance sometime maybe I'll have to try and see if it will upload.


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
