I love the awesome art & challenges at the Gingersnap Creations blog. Since March has five Wednesdays, today's challenge is a Blue Moon Challenge to create something using one of the many tutorials available on their blog. I can't believe I never noticed they have an entire collection of tutorials ... so many possibilities. I chose the fabulous Sponge & Shimmerz technique.
I sponged white cardstock with blue and green inks (and a touch of purple in the sky) and then painted with Butter Cream Shimmerz to blend. I stamped the Windmill from Artistic Outpost's Lovely Day in India ink and clear embossed. I added a little twist to the technique by brushing a little Magenta Shimmerz over the flowers after stamping.
I also tried a sketch from a new blog I found on Allison's Daily Sketch post ~ Sketch Girl. I used Memory Box paper on the background with scraps of DP. Here's another view of the card that captures more of the wonderful shimmer from this technique ... so easy and fun.
