Sponge a layer for JUGS

This week, Just Us Girls has a challenge to make a card using sponging to create a false layer effect. I've used this technique before, and I love it, so I was quite happy to give it another go.
I used Tattered Rose Distress Ink to do the sponging, the stamped the blossom stamp (from a Stampin' Up set - can't remember the name of the set, sorry) and then coloured the blossoms with RV11 and RV29 Copics, with highlights with my Uniball Signo broad white gel pen. The sentiment is from Amuse Art Stamps.

  3. Your sponge technique is perfect! I only used my Nestie edge to sponge the focal mat of my card, but I'm definitely going to try this with the torn edge and stamping over top. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Kathy
