Timeless Tuesday Sponging

Friends Are Flowers

FOF Cindy Haffner Sponging

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC17).

This week we are introducing our first Flourishes Guest Challenge Host Connie  McCotter (cmc2stamp)! Thanks so much Connie for hosting this week!! Connie is challenging us to sponging.

Sponge coloring, sponge distressing, sponge shading, and sponge stenciling to name a few are some of the hottest techniques in stamping. So, grab you ink pad and sponges and add a little sponging to your card. We would love to see what you create!

Things I used on my card:

  • Stamps: Flourishes: (Nasturtiums)
  • INK: Copic Markers
  • PAPER: BG (Wisteria) Sent to me from a sweet friend. Blue and Eggplant
  • Spellbinder Dies, Trim, ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch.

Hugs Cindy xxoo
