Circus Fun!! PLUS Blog Candy further down!!
High Hopes Stamps has a challenge every Sunday. This is HHC19, and we were to use sponging. It's somewhat ironic that I do a lot of sponging and when a sponging challenge comes along all I do is sponge the edge of the card base and designer paper! My collection of HH stamps is small, (I'm actually waiting on an order now), and so I use what I have. I just felt like this particular card was calling for a cleaner, brighter look, so I went lightly on the sponging.
I added a little Glitz frosting, a Flair badge, and American Crafts paper. The base is Cool Carribean, and the pink is one of the SU! ones, I got it out of one of my assortments, and since I'm no longer a demo, I've forgotten which is which! I colored the images with markers, reinkers and Niji watercolor paints. The Niji paints are VERY shimmery, and I add them after I've colored. When I grow up I'll be able to color as well as Anna & Ila & Crissy. Seriously. One of these days I'm going to take an actual art class and learn how to watercolor properly.
