Card Making Technique:  Sponging 3

 I made this card using three sponging techniques:

I stamped the leaves in crumb cake, cut them out on the Big Shot, and sponged them first with crushed curry followed by pumpkin pie, Cajun craze, and real red.

I placed a 3 x 3 piece of vanilla card stock on my workspace and then taped the mask over the top.  Using the same four colors, I sponged in circular motions over the mask.

I removed the mask and sponged around the outside edges with real red.

Using the same four colors, I sponged around the edges of the 4 x 5 1/4 vanilla card stock and sponged the edges in real red.  I then stamped the background splatter and the checked pattern.

I finished the card by layering the leaves and tying a Linen Thread bow around the stems, adhering them to the 3 x 3 sponged piece, and mounting that piece to the card with dimensionals.  I used Teeny Tiny Tiny Wishes for the greeting.
