I've not had much success with sponging in the past, but I'm dead chuffed with how this card has turned out. I printed out the sentiment first - right back in my comfort zone after Saturday's horrific experience with you-know-who - & masked off the square using torn edged paper for a softer look.
The image was stamped 3 times: once on the card & then twice on white paper. I sponged the different areas on the 2 separate images & then paper-pieced them together. I put some sellotape over the heart before cutting out, for a slightly glossy finish. Originally tried colouring the bucket with pro-markers, but that was just too harsh against the sponged background.
Love it love it love IT. Fully expect tomorrow to find a challenge with a seaside / summer theme that I now can't enter!
