Just Because

Just Because is included in my list of favorite sets to play with.  Today I thought I would try the Sponged Stencil Technique.

You just find a punch that you like and take a piece of scrap card stock and punch the shape out.  Save the piece you would normally keep for another project.

Take the scrap piece with the punched out area.  Here I used a large circle punch.  I did take the original circle and a pencil and made a mark around it on my working paper so I could see where to line up the "stencil."  I did that because I wanted the circle centered.  You don't need to do that unless you want things in a specific place.

I lined up the "stencil" with my pencil lines and I sponged in some Daffodil Delight first and then some More Mustard.  And for this card, that was it.  The sponging gave the circle a nice look of the sun setting.  Though I should have done more on the background to give it a bit more depth.  But I do like how this turned out anyway, so I left it as it is.  I kept it simple.

The butterfly is from the Kindness Matters set.  I just took a piece of post it paper and masked off the are I didn't want ink on and then stamped the butterfly.

This is a very easy and fun card to make.

Don't forget to leave a comment here for the Blog Candy drawing tomorrow.
