Technique spotlight - sponging

This is a card I did for the technique challenge over at a shade of blue. The challenge is to do a bit more sponging than just the outside edges of an image or card.

I fell in love with this stamp when I attended a basic stamping class at my LSS. It's from Just for Fun stamps. Anyway, during the class we brayered the background orange while masking the sun. I have never been able to duplicate that look! I own three brayers and I can not get one of them to work for me! So, in frustration I got out my sponges and daubers and went to work and this is the end result.

I'm also really excited to announce that I have been asked to be on the Altered Angels Design team on A shade of blue. I don't alter a lot of things - stuck in the card rut, I guess. But this should be a great way for me to step outside of my four walls and be a little creative!

Happy May Day everyone!
