Masked Sponging

This is  a technique that I taught at my last card class. I had seen several cards using this technique and stamp set that I was keen to have a go at. This is what we ended up with, though my sample was slightly different. The ladies decided it was a good sympathy card.                                                              I had used Rose red ribbon on my original sample and    different sentiments .
Stamps:Serene Silhouettes,Loving thoughts ( Just Believe)
Ink:Pool Party,Lucky Limeade,Stazon black
Accessories:  Sponges,Labels framelits collection, Ribbon

Paper:Cherry Cobbler,Vanilla,Be of good cheer.
Ink:Gumbell green, Cherry cobbler, Black
Accessories: Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Holiday framelits,Bakers Twine, Dimensionals,Stampin write markers
