Sponging backgrounds

I know, I know, I Know......it's been ages!  I am giving myself a couple of months off my regular classes in order to try and catch up with things that have been left and neglected, as well as give myself some time to try and rest my weary arms and shoulders!

Here is a card I made this morning, it is very very late but, I just can't be creative when I'm stressed or unhappy and with the loss of an elderly neighbour and moving Kim back to Bath had taken all the time and energy I had, so I was unable to come up with a card for the occasion.  I am hoping the lady in question won't mind too much (sorry it's so late Alison!)



I used Stampin' Up cardstock in Sahara Sand and Stampin' Up Bravo Burgandy ink to sponge through the stencil I made using my new Silhouette, which I absolutely love.  I also used the Silhouette to cut out the word on the front, using Black Stampin' Up cardstock.

I used Stampin' Up's Dazzling Diamonds to highlight each balloon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting,

Carole
