Card for Technique Class

Hello!

Today I knew I had to sit down and prepare for some of the classes I have coming up this month and next. The one that was giving me the most grief was a second card for our technique class.

I went on Pinterest to get some inspiration and saw a card by a stamper called Gery. I loved the look of it and thought it would make a great technique!! The website is http://stampingismagic.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/life.html so many thanks to Gery for her wonderful card and website!!

I'm not sure what to call this technique as I don't think the way I have done it is how Gery did it, but I am thinking Sponged Circle would be a good name :)

First, I cut my Whisper White cardstock to 14cm x 28cm and folded it in half. I cut a second piece of cardstock to 14cm x 14cm and cut a circle out using the third larges plain circle from Circles Collection - Framelits (I think it is about 8cm across). A little bit of repositionable tape (I still have some dotto, so I used that, but you could use the two way glue and wait until it dries before using) on the back of the 14cm x 14cm piece of cardstock and attached it to the card as a mask. Then using the cut circle as my template (making sure that you always move it from the same position - ie. have it touching the outside of the circle in the same spot each time you reposition it) I sponged the different colours.

I have made 3 cards using different colours (thought it may be a good idea if not everyone was waiting for the same colour in class) :) I am really happy with the way they have turned out and they were lots of fun to make too!

What do you think??













Thanks for looking!!

Until next time
