Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 3

I hope you are enjoying this series in which I am showing you several Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper. We’ve covered Common Cuts and Fussy cutting. Today, we are sponging it. This is another great technique to add colour and alter your DSP.

Sponge it

Sponging can be done using a sponge dauber or sponges. Each of these tools will give you a different effect when you are sponging over larger areas. Personally, for smaller areas and edging, I prefer the sponge daubers. These nifty little tools are like a thimble with a sponge on one side and open on the other so you can pop it on your finger. This makes it handy to work around your projects.

This card uses sponging in it’s classic form for creating a distressed finish giving this card a vintage feel. The Toile Tidings DSP images just lend itself to creating vintage cards. They are so pretty that I didn’t want to cover any of it so I selected a lovely sentiment and kept the rest of the card clean so the beauty of this paper could be seen. Until the end of October you can get this paper at 15% off.

This is a quick and easy card to make using the Feels Like Frost Specialy DSP which has photographic images on one side and silver foil on the other. I used the silver foil side and sponged over with Coastal Cabana. The silver resisted the ink while only the white leaves picked up the colour. This is a really fun way to alter the colour of paper.

Although this DSP is perfect for Christmas cards, you can see that it can be used for other occasions with this beautiful silver foil.
