Crafting the Web. She is an awesome sponger. One day, I may be half as good as she is. Here is the recipe for my card. (All items are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.)
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree Thankful Thoughts,
Special Delivery Addition by

Paper: Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie,
White, Naturals Ivory
Ink: Black, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie,Garden Green, Always Artichoke
- I used a mask around the top and two sides of the "window" so that when I stamped the trees, they would not show up outside of the window.
- The orange was really a mistake. I was trying to create leaves on my trees, which didn't look right. Now, I hope that it looks like a setting sun coming through the trees.
- I used always artichoke on the ground below the trees to give it a shadow effect.
- I lightly sponged Pear Pizzazz on the sentiment to keep it from looking too bright.
In my future attempts at sponging, I want it to look more misty or dream quality like. The way it is now, you can see the circles or spots, where I first put down my sponge. I am going to try a different kind of sponge next time. We'll see. I am diligently searching the web for more sponging techniques. I need the basics. Anyone out there have any helpful hints for me? I would appreciate it very much!
Thanks so much for dropping by.
Blessings to you all,Terri
