this card. Love how they turned out!!
For the first one, I started with a laser printed image of a skyline which I downloaded off of CLKER. To create the beautiful sunset I punched a 1.25" hole in a scrap of paper, positioned it over the buildings I wanted to highlight and sponged in some yellow ink. Next, I covered up the yellow with the 1.25" circle punchie and sponged on the orange and some dark pink. Using the edges of a few torn strips I added some purple and blue.
For my second one, I started with an image of elephants (CLKER) and sponged brown at the bottom to form the earth, added another little layer for depth and then sponged yellow above that.
For my third card, I started with another laser printed image of a cattail and some reeds (CLKER). I used a straight edge for the far side of the lake and sponged blue below it. I covered the blue and added some light green, added a torn edge and added some blue green. I covered the blue green with a torn edge and sponged on some blue and then used several torn edges to add layers to the blue sky. Finally, I created some mountains by sponging purple between two torn edges and stamped in a few green tree tops. I layered my sponged image onto black, layered it over my green embossed card front capturing a little flag ended embellishment made from cardstock and ribbon. I lightly sponged my printed greeting and layered it below the flag end of the embellishment.
It has been a lot of fun playing with ink and sponges!! The black silhouettes look so dramatic next to the vibrant colours.
