High Hopes Challenge #19


Good Afternoon Everyone!



This card is for a relative and for High Hopes Challenge #19 , This weeks challenge is all about sponging. Sponging is not a strong suit for me at all and I handled this challenge very carefully. Because as you know, once the ink is sponged on...it's on! *lol* In the back of my head, I had a recurring nightmare of me accidentally dropping my inked sponge onto my finished image. I tell you...I handled this challenge a bit nervously and this is my take on the challenge.




Card Details.......................

stamp High Hopes Rubber Stamps, sentiment SU, c/s SU and PTI, DP all SU, inks Copic Markers, As for sponging...I sponged Old Rose ink on the edges of my design paper and on the edges of matted image. Nesties square and sm circle dies, paper piercing, extra fine glitter, flowers, liquid glass and pearls

Have a great day everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!


Hugs

Wow, your sponging turned out beautifully. I love all the pinks on your card and the fabulous layering. Beautiful job coloring the image too. I would love to participate in the challenges but I only have a few High Hopes images and they are mostly Christmas images. LOL! I guess I have to buy a few of them, huh!

Beautiful coloring as always, Risa!! Love the glitters too!
