Embossing and Sponging Class

Embossing and sponging Class for you to do at home or book into a class with me have fun stamping. This is coming up in January Thursday 22nd Time 1pm-3pm cost $20.00 must book

Card1 Seaworthy and Sincere Salutations Stamp sets The first thing you need to do draw some clouds on to a piece of paper then cut around them .
Next when Inking up your sponge use a soft tapping motion..only if you wont an intens color do you rub.
Always remember Les is best you can always add more color,but you cant take it away.
Position the template so it is slightly off the card stock your going to sponge on to. Hold your sponge in a tight circles.What this dose ,is allow any ink build up to mark your template not your work.
The closer your circles stay to the template, the smoother your clouds will be.It also leaves a nice white areas to highlight the clouds.
I have used Blue Bayou for the top of the card and handsome Hunter mix with Blue Bayou for the bottom of the card
