Nature Trees ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card with Video

I haven't done any sponging in a while and wanted to get a little bit of it in again.  I decided to use the pine tree stamp from the Fun Stampers Journey set called Nature Trees to create a nighttime masculine card.

To create this card I stamped the trees onto Whip Cream card stock with three different ink pads:  Rock Candy, River Stone and Black Licorice.  Then I masked an area for the moon using a 1-1/2" circle.  After that it's time to sponge for a bit.  With this type of sponging I dab the sponge directly up and circles or rubbing back and forth (and I always dab it onto my scrap paper before putting it directly on the paper so I know how dark the ink is). I started with the lightest gray (River Stone) and sponged around the moon, moving away from the moon.  I wanted that area to be the lightest so I'm pretty careful when I sponge where I want the most light to show.  Next I used Rock Candy, but started on the edges and in the corners and dabbed the color inward, pulling it toward the moon until the lighter and darker grays mixed together the way I liked.  The last color I sponged was Black Licorice.  I only used that in the corners and on some of the edges.  I was careful with this color because I didn't want to drown out the grays. I put on just enough to blend it in with the darker gray.  

Here's a video of how I sponged the card...
