These four sponging techniques used with the Love of Leaves Bundle are a great way to make unique cards! The first technique is to sponge the same color ink of the cardstock you are using to make the edges pop. (second card)
On this card, Tim stamped the leaf from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Pumpkin Pie, and then used a sponge dauber with Shaded Spruce to dab over parts of the stamp before using it on the cardstock.
This technique is explained in detail in the video below. Sponge the colors you choose on Watercolor Paper, then spritz with water. When that dries, use the dies to cut out the leave.
The “streaking” design on the side of the card is made by running the edge of the stamp pads along the card front.
When you cut out the Stitched Leaves dies, use the leftover card stock as a mask and create cards like this by sponging:
The plaid papers from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper works well with these leaves too. Look how simple this card is.
And this card is the same design as the first card in this post – just done with the plaid paper instead!
Back to the basics – with just the stamps! Look how easy this card is! It looks like you watercolored it – but its just the design of the stamp itself.
Stamping on the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper creates a rich background with just simple stamping.
