I’ve got a whole list of different crafts and recipes to try during 30DoC but when my friend Carson posted a link for this Double Sponging Technique, I decided to try it. Heather Telford at Bits and Pieces created a wonderful tutorial showing this process.
In Heather’s version, she first sponged ink onto card stock then stamped a music background stamp over the paper. I don’t have a music stamp so I adapted her technique and used actual sheet music!
The vintage sheet music is a bit fragile and I didn’t use the adhesive I usually do when making cards. Instead, anytime I was adhering sheet music to card stock I used a glue stick.
First I sponged several light colors over a piece of sheet music.
Than I used VersaMark ink to stamp a clear butterfly image on this inked background. I embossed the butterfly with clear embossing powder and heat set it.
Next I sponged over the whole piece with darker colors of ink.
Finally, I put the butterfly on a mat of colored card stock and used it on a card, along with a greeting and embellishments.
I made two butterfly cards and one bird card using the Double-Sponging Technique. This is definitely a technique I will use again after 30DoC. Thanks for sharing the link, Carson!
Last year on Day 4 I made Pizza Bites.
I appreciate your interest and support.
