Simply Sketched

Today's card was fun and quick too!  I got to do a bit of sponging, which is one of my favorite techniques!  I used the butterfly Sizzlet and cut out 3 butterflies using Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple and Rose Red card stock.  I did my sponging in Melon Mambo.  

The words are from that same set.  It's too bad it's a Hostess set.  It will get used a LOT before it retires!!!  It's such a fun and pretty set. 

For my flower I colored in the stems with Wild Wasabi and the flower was colored in using a sponge dauber and Melon Mambo.  I had made a template for the flower at the last project I did using this set and I saved it.  This time I did better on the sponging.  I find I can sponge better using a dauber than just a wedge of sponge.  I lightly sponged over the whole flower and then I sponged over the edges and center of it several more times to give it some depth and definition.  

The white background was done using the stylus and the Simply Scored Diagonal plate.  It was the first time I had used it.  I got it back in January during the Sale-a-Brations event and I have never used it!!  It's difficult to see in the photo but the score lines go in both directions.  I scored 2 lines, counted 8 lines and then scored on the 9th and 10th line.  I repeated that across the piece.  Then I turned it and repeated that again.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Very pretty, Wanda. Yes, I wish that I could get that stamp set, but I only have one friend who stamps, but can't afford to buy much and I sure can't make a party with just my order!!!!!

Thanks for telling us how you made the white background. I will be trying it for some of my cards.
