Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Sponging and Daubing

One favorite technique of the ladies in my classes is always sponging and daubing!  It's often a final touch that we add to the edge of a piece of paper, often in a brown, to make the paper look "distressed" or even burned or worn. It's super easy and provides that last element that steps a project up to the next level.  For this card, we did the daubing first!  I chose some gorgeous rose patterned Designer Series Paper and then used a dauber and Blushing Bride pink ink. With gentle, circular motions, I "daubed" all the roses pink.   Here's the card:


I chose to stop there, but you could certainly daub on some green leaves and even another color background. With this particular technique, the key is choosing a light enough colored ink that doesn't cover up the printed detail of the flower design.  One other thing about this card I want to point out is the black glimmer paper!  that's a new product in the Holiday catalog, under the Halloween suite. I just used a tad as the bottom layer of my sentiment piece, but I love the sparkle! My supplies are listed below if you want to try some daubing of your own!
