Stampin' Up! ~ Sponged City

How about another card from early last fall?  I wanted something masculine and was in the mood to do some sponging at the time.  I also thought the buildings stamp from the set Calling All Heroes was pretty cool and hadn't used it for a bit so I created a simple scene using it.  It's always fun to see how each of the ladies' cards turn out after my stamp a stacks.  All similar, yet their own fun creation!  I love showing the ladies that they can make cards that they thought they couldn't!  I admit that I challenge them with at least one card each time. :)  They keep coming back so they must enjoy it!

Not a lot of colors here, but I like the look of them together...

This scene is pretty easy to create.  I started by stamping the "city" with Basic Black onto Whisper White cardstock.  Next I punched out a 1-3/4" circle from scrap paper to use as a mask. I attached it with just a touch of removable adhesive.  Using a sponge and Marina Mist I got busy sponging.  For this card I dabbed it up and down...a lot! lol  I started around the moon.  I wanted it to be the lightest around that and to get darker as it got farther away.  Once I had everything sponged lightly all over I started at the corners and worked my way inward until I was happy with how it looked.  I took off the moon mask and assembled my card after I knew the sponged ink was dry.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
