Make it Monday March 7 – Papertrey Ink

I am kind of down today, as my favourite show Downton Abbey is over forever.  It was such a treat to watch these past six years.

Anyway my other treat is Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday challenge.  I just got a new order from them and made a card that I just love.  I was hoping that the Monday Challenge theme would feature something I did on this card.  Well it did a bit but to a pretty minor degree.  I did some sponging over stamping but just on some small leaves.

In the end I made another card to try out sponging over stamping.  I worked on getting different colours, textures and shades on a stamp set that was not a layering stamp set on its’ own.

Here is the result which turned out quite well:


Siupplies:  Papertrey Ink Pack your Bags stampset, Distress inks, Simon Says Inks, Tsukineko sponge daubers, Recollections cardstock, Hero Arts card Base, Neenah Solar White cardstock, Scor tape, WeR  Geotag enamel dot.
