Fern frond wedding card

After being a little experimental the other day I returned to the safety and comfort of masking and sponging. Sigh…that’s more like it.

We went to a beautiful wedding on Saturday where the bridesmaids wore purple and carried green and red flowers.  I went with purple and green colour scheme for my card.  I masked so I could sponged about a third of the card.  I sponged with sage shadow, almost amethyst and elegant eggplant.  Before removing the mask I stamped the fern a few times.  With the mask off I stamped the fern again and added the sentiment.

Thank you for all the encouraging comments about my “experiment”.  I appreciate you taking the time to write me a note.


Stamps: Wilderness Vol.2 (Darkroom Door), Teeny Tiny wishes(SU)

    What a beautiful card. And a perfect example of why it’s so wonderful to stamp. You know that bride’s going to open the card and say “How lovely! These are my wedding colors!” Being able to tailor cards to the occasion is so nice. You can’t do that at Hallmark! And you won’t find a card this lovely there, either. You really are the Queen of Sponging, Heather; nobody does it better. This is gorgeous.

    I agree with Joan B. — you are definitely the best masker/sponger! You also sponge with colours I would not think to put together, but of course look amazing when you do it. Beautiful card.
