Sponged Sky



Hi all! Quick post today because I seriously need to get crackin' on work for this week....I'm so behind! I wanted to try Jeanne's Sponged Sky Technique and I thought these new dandelions and silhouette's from my OCL Dandy Days set would be perfect for it. I added some Waterfall Stickles randomly on the dotted parts of the images. The white panel with the ribbon is up on foam tape, and so is the large sponged panel that's sitting against the card base.

Here's the inside:



Have a GREAT day, all!

Such a beautiful card! I love the sponged sky, how you put the image scene up on a separate panel with dimensionals, and I just love that sentiment! I'll have to remember that when I'm pulling dandelions out of my garden this spring. LOL!
