This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Heather, the Queen of sponging. And the Queen has decreed that this week's challenge will include sponging.
I admit that sponging is not always my favourite technique because it's messy and unpredictable (probably if I did more of it, it would become more predictable!). But the texture you get is deeper than stamping, and the wonderful blending possibilities are endless.
Although I've made a couple of cards recently where I used sponging to achieve blending (this sympathy and Christmas card), I knew I wanted to make a card that had more precise images this time. I used one big mask with all the circles cut out so that I wasn't moving paper around and exposing bits that I knew I wanted to be smudge-free! I rounded the (unknown) sentiment to fit.
