This week’s Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC17) was set by guest challenge host Connie, and she is challenging us to use sponging on our cards. I was up for that challenge! I also used the colors from this week’s color challenge on SCS.
I decided to make my background using emboss resist, by stamping Fifth Avenue florals in versamark on whisper white paper, and embossing with clear embossing powder. I then lightly sponged on bashful blue ink on the flowers and pumpkin pie ink around the flowers. Then I wiped off the embossed flowers for the finish. The focal image is stamped in bashful blue, and the pitcher is sponged in bashful blue too. I lightly sponged the base area around the pitcher in pumpkin pie. The embellishment is a button I covered with dp and clear crystal effects, and the ribbon is So saffron ribbon from Stampin’ Up. This card makes me think of the warm sunshine filled days of summer! I can’t wait for those!!
I think I’ll be sending this out as a birthday card…I’m a bit late with a few! Bad girl.
