TSB Moose

I used the adorable "Moose" image from The Stamping Boutique for this card.  Perfect image for a male birthday card!

TSB is currently sponsoring Drunken Stampers this week and their challenge is "Sponge a background, no designer paper!"

It's been awhile since I made my own paper, so I thought it would be fun to do this challenge!!

Here's my finished card:

I first stamped two swirls on the card stock and then used a cotton ball to sponge some different shades of brown Creative Inspiration Paints onto the cardstock as well.
 I used "Tan", "Raw Sienna" and "Autumn Wheat". As you can see in the above picture I first dab the cotton ball on my scrap piece of paper before onto my good cardstock as I want to dab some of the paint off first so I don't get one huge glob of it in one spot.

I just love how it turned out:

Here's another close-up after the card was put all together:

The green embossed paper:
I used "Sage" and "Green Olive" for this piece.

Have a great day!

I love your card, and especially your sponging: I think it might be the most professional I've ever seen on a card!
