Here is Karen's sketch challenge - CAS-ual Fridays CFC29
And...here is my second take on the sketch.
Usually, when I do a sponged background, I end up creating the background 2 or 3 times until I get it right. You know, a blotch or a smudge jumps onto my card (through no fault of my own, of course.) Not this time.
I masked off the area to be sponged, with post-it notes. I used 6 different blue inks to sponge the background, then stamped the two deer and created the "grass" with the darkest of the inks. I love using this sponging technique, so if you've followed my blog for a while you've seen it a few times, before.
Anyway, I HAVE to get my house ready for the big Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. So...gotta' go!
