The sponged card:
The non-sponged card:
Somehow, during the creative process the non-sponged card seemed to grow, expand, get fat! I don't make fat or lumpy cards! Now, I do admire, sometimes even drool over cards with layers and layers of beauty, but then think...how would I possibly mail something like this? What a great idea for another post.
To give you a visual point of reference, I love to peruse the My Favorite Things blog. These cards are so adorable with all of their layers, die cuts, embellishments, ribbon, buttons, stitching, and bling. Not to mention the beautiful Copic work. Am I still trying to define my style? No, I hope not! I thought I had already traveled down that path. Honostly, I've always thought of myself, and my style as Plain Jane. You know, the vanilla ice cream type. Is it possible to have more than one style? Ok, I really should get back to the origional question. Do you like the sponged or non-sponged look?
Finally, I can't forget to credit the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog for the sketch inspiration.
