Look at the freedom this sketch allows for! I did some Iron Off Embossing and lots of sponging on my card and I'm really happy with how it came out.
I clear embossed the script image from Tim Holtz' Papillon set onto some watercolor paper before sponging on various yellow and orange distress inks. I used watercolor paper because my original intention was to smoosh inks into my craft mat but I decided I wanted more control, so went with sponging. Once I was happy with the panel, I ironed off the clear embossing. I didn't want to cut the panel down to suit the sketch, so I interpreted the sketch slightly differently by adding strips of black cardstock to a piece of vellum paper.
I then stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink. I placed some orange enamel dots on the vellum as a finishing touch.
I am linking this to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use your favorite technique. I love everything to do with color - sponging is one of my favorites was to mix color.
