Double sponging tutorialPosted: May 18, 2012
On Wednesday I posted a card featuring a little square filled with a butterfly and some music. Today I have a tutorial showing the technique on a new card with a bigger image panel.
First I sponged three colours randomly over a piece of white cardstock. Careful blending is not important because the sponging will be stamped over and responged.
I stamped the music background over the stamping in a darker colour.
It’s hard to see but next I embossed the butterfly in clear embossing powder.
The final step is to sponge over the whole panel in a dark colour and watch the butterfly emerge.
