Wetlands Technique Tuesday

Wetlands Technique Tuesday
I honestly never thought I'd buy this stamp because honestly, I never thought I'd have the creativity to work with it!  Well, I was WRONG!  This stamp set is amazing and I really think my customers love it!  You are probably wondering HOW I did the background paper?  I have an easy answer: sponging.  Brandy Cox has a great video tutorial over on her page located here.  Sponging is SO much fun and actually therapy!

As far as doing the piece with the family of birds... I used a masking technique.  I actually covered up the part I wasn't sponging to do the blue water... then I pulled off the piece of typing paper and blended it down (to give them faded out look).  Then I covered the blue/ white up and added the Sahara Sand to make sand.  If you want Brandy's video, it helps you out!
This is a direct CASE from Brandy's card.  I wanted to show both versions.  Do you LOVE the stamp set?  Click the image toward the bottom of this post to take you directly to the store.  Believe me, you NEED this set (with the sponges and blender pens).  Let me know if I can help you in ordering anything, or answering any questions about the Sponging technique!
