Sponged Background Card

February 16, 2012

Cards, Stamp Sets


This is a card I made after I watched a StampTV video.  I am so excited at how it came out!  I think this is very pretty!  I am going to be using this technique again and again!!

To do this, you take a larger piece of cardstock and tear it.  You place two sides across the card so you have a small strip to ink, taping it to your workspace.  You take a lighter color ink and rub it across the area.  Be sure you put pressure down so that the card base does not slide.  Then take a darker shade and ink just near the edges.  Then stamp in black and color as you choose.  I used this stamp set because of the open areas.  Embellish as you wish.  I love ribbon so that is what i did.  You could also stamp a sentiment in the bottom white area too!

This makes a great technique to get a flatter card with dimension in the inking!

    What a great idea for the sponging. I sure am going to try this technique. I love it it looks so real. Thanks for the inspiration. I am new to making cards and this seems like something I can do. I try most of the techniques I see, so thanks for this.
