Hi card making friends, and welcome back. I have a new share for you today, the Stampin Up Falling Flowers and a Sponging Technique for this month’s Stamping Techniques 101 Challenge.
Ok, it was supposed to be Falling Flowers, but I decided to change it to the Flourish Thinlits and I still show you the Falling Flowers card at the end of the video.
Our Challenge this monthly is “Sponging”. I LOVE any sponging technique but for today I decided to do a double layer sponging incorporating the Bokeh Technique with die cut overlays.
The Bokeh technique is usually done with the Craft White Ink, but for today’s card I did it tone on tone, just to change it up a bit.
I’m pretending it’s spring up here in the frozen north so my colour choices for today are Mint Macaron (soon to retire) and Peekaboo Peach.
Here is a video for you explaining how I combined the two techniques, hope you enjoy it. If you are reading this in an e-mail, CLICK HERE to visit my blog to watch the video, or SUBSCRIBE to my You Tube Channel – then you will get notified every time I load a video.
The Card Recipes and Product List are at the end of the post for you.
And now it’s time to hop and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for our Sponging Challenge for this month:
