VSN’s newest FREE eArticle, “Sponge & Brush Techniques for Stampers” has now been posted on VSN’s website and on the Online Shopping Cart. Whew! This eArticle has a really broad topic (I’ve gotta learn not to do that!) and so there is a TON of info inside. It’s also one of the longer eArticles I’ve published. So it took awhile to get it all together for you. But I think you are going to like it.
The new “Sponge & Brush Techniques For Stampers” eArticle will be posted in an hour or two. We had a power outage yesterday afternoon (the high heat seems to be getting to BGE lately) and so I didn’t get the final eArticle layouts and tweaks done until this morning.
I know that the blog has been very quiet this week, but I have a good excuse! I’ve been working hard on the “Sponge & Brush Techniques for Stampers” eArticle. I’ve got the text and pictures done and the layout for the pdf version. I just need to do the epub and Kindle layouts for those versions and we’ll be ready to go. Look for them probably around late morning or mid-day tomorrow (07/20/13.)
The topic was so broad for this one that I touch on a TON of techniques that I think will inspire you. In the process I made a dozen sponged and/or stippled cards. (VSN readers contributed another six.) The card above is, I think, my favorite of the cards I created. I used various brushes and sponges to create the background and to color the stamped image. The text is from a smARTworks set. I don’t have a stamp credit for the basket of fruit; it was unmounted and didn’t have the company name. (If anyone knows the credit, please let me know.)
