A Sunny Day

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!!
