Sponging Technique

These cards were inspired by a technique that Sophia Landry from Paper Crafter's Library demonstrated this week. She cleverly masked an area with torn paper and sponged ink onto the card. Her card was also a single layer card which are a challenge for me so I gave her technique a try. I really had fun with it as you can see. I ended up making two cards but played around making several other backgrounds with various colors..  On the first card, I left a lot of white space like Sophia did, but then I played around with the technique a bit more and ended up making the second card and using the technique to fill in the white space with green inks.

Supplies: Card base: Paper Studios, Ink: Paper Studios, Stamp: Stampin' Up, Sponge, Scrap pieces of torn cardstock


  1. Lovely cards using this technique, Brenda, love the hills you made on the second one! thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. I enjoy sharing with all who stop by! Where do you live, the thistles in your photo are beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Sylvia! The flowers in my blog header are actually flax, a common wild flower here in Wyoming. The color is usually so intensely blue that it is breathtaking. I have a huge picture window in my scrap room that looks out over this meadow. It's just gorgeous.

  2. Yikes! Sorry I haven't been by to visit! These two cards are beautiful, you really know how to make ink work in your favor. Stunning!

  3. So beautiful! Great design, too :)
