Today I share a card made using the sponging & reflection technique.
Now I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of artists who are great with using sponges, but I have to say, I am not. I have a go and that is the point of this card. You need to try new things and maybe one day, you too will accomplish new highs.
The very first thing I did, was to stamp the image in basic black ink. Then I stamped that same image onto some acetate and quickly applied the acetate to the card to create the reflection.
Then I placed a large post it note across the bottom of the main image to create the horizon first. I used sponge daubers to keep adding colour until I was happy with it. Be careful not to add too much, as you can always add more, not take it away!!!
Then I removed the post it note and did the lower section of the card. I added some washi tape and the sentiment overlay with a stapler.
Inks: Marina Mist, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Basic Black, Island Indigo
Stamp sets: Serene Silhouettes
How do you think I did with the sponging? Yeah, needs improvement, but that will come with more practice!
