Sponged Backgrounds

As you've probably gathered by now from my posted projects, I love to sponge ink! Usually, it's along the edges of layers, but every now and then, I love to make my background with this technique. This background uses a torn post-it note with sponged ink to create my hillside on Blush Blossom cardstock. Not rocket science by any means, but I love the effect. The colors used on this card are Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red. There's one small layer of Cameo Coral cardstock around my main panel. I used my homemade Champaigne Mist Shimmer Paint spray (which my hostess club members will get to play with this month!) all across the stamped panel. In real life, the spray adds a beautiful, subtle glittery effect across the entire surface.... it's so pretty! Just use a small spray bottle, fill with one teaspoon of 70% rubbing alcohol and about 7 drops of Shimmer Paint... shake well before each use, and you are ready to rock! Ribbon and little pearls finish off the main panel. The textured background is a new embossing folder in the Summer Mini called Square Lattice. The stamped trees are from Trendy Trees....

Have a great weekend! See you soon!
