Sponge & Brush Techniques eArticle to Post Tomorrow!

Nancie Waterman Sponged and Brushed Card

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.)
