Sponging-or-Stencils Challenge ODBDSLC210

     Today, I have a card for Our Daily Bread Designs Sponging or Stencils challenge. I went with sponging and had lots of fun creating my card.
     I sponged green pigment ink onto a good part of a sheet of white cardstock using a regular sponge from the kitchen. After the pigment dried, I die cut my label with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty Two and die cut two vines using ODBD's Fancy Foliage die. I stamped the sentiment using ODBD's No Words stamps. I love how the sponging turned out! I'll be using this technique again and often. I'm planning on using it in my next children's book too. If you have not tried, I encourage you to give it a try.
     I usually get my challenge cards posted in time for you, my wonderful followers, to play along. But, I've been so busy getting material ready for the writer's workshop I'm teaching that time has gotten away from me. The deadline is a few short hours away. If you are faster than I am, you could still get a card in. Deadline is 8 p.m. Eastern tonight! Check out the details here: http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2014/07/odbdslc210-sponging-or-stencils-week-2.html
     As usual, I love having you drop in and look at my cards or read about my writing. Thanks so much.
