Card Making Technique:  Sponging 2

One of my favorite stamp sets from the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog is This Little Piggy found on page 48.
I used sponging to create the background.  
 I stamped the pigs in black ink and covered them with masks.  (See my earlier post on masking.)

I started sponging the sun with yellow and then added some orange.  (circular motions on a flat surface--see my earlier post Sponging 1.)
Next I sponged the sky and finished up with the ground.  

The best way to get started with this type of technique is to practice blending different colors on a piece of scrap paper.  (Remember the circular motion!)   Start with a light color and then add  the  darker shades.  It's fun to see the end result!  I hope you will try this technique.  Join me next time for Sponging 3.  
I am always interested in your comments--add them at the bottom of the post.  
Happy Stamping!
