Bethlehem hillsPosted: December 4, 2012
After I made my first card with this stamp and took over an hour to colour it with pencils I knew I had to come up with another technique if I was going to make this card multiple times. So, believe it or not, I decided to try sponging the scene.After stamping in versamark and embossing in clear on a separate piece of cardstock, I masked around the border and then chose three colours for sponging the scene. I wish I had masked the card base and stamped the outline image directly onto it because then I could participate in Karen’s One Layer Wednesday Challenge to create a scene. I love creating stamped scenes so I am sad to not have played along this week.
Love is in the air on the Penny Black blog this week and next so drop in and see the Valentine’s new releases and enter to win one of the new stamps.
