CI + Sponges

Good morning fellow crafty friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend!


You're probably wondering why in the world I have kitchen sponges! ;)

Well recently I was shopping and needed to pick some sponges up, well as my mind is always thinking crafty thoughts, as I picked them up I thought it would be fun to buy some extras to use with CI's shimmery paints!!

I found, that I really like the pink one the best!

I started by using a paint brush to add the paint color of my choice, in the this case Tutu Pink, to the sponge.

I also did a test sample using Sunshine:
I didn't realize I didn't have any bigger paint brushes as the kids recently use them and I through them out as they had gotten really bad - so just a note you may want to use a bigger brush, so you can put more on at a time.

How fun is that?! 

Another sample using Burgundy:
You could make your own SHIMMERY backgrounds with these cheap sponges!!

Here's a sample using the yellow sponge:


For my card I created I used a piece of patterned paper and then used the pink sponge and Tutu Pink:

I just love the look!

The entire card:
I also used Deliquesce Fine Black Embossing Powder on the stamped swirls around the sentiment.

Have a great week!!
