Heart 2 Heart ~ Sponging

Welcome to our second challenge of May here at Heart 2 Heart!

This challenge is a fun one! Sponging is a fun technique that can be done using a variety of ink. I will show you two cards using Oxide Inks and the other using regular ink. We hope you will join us and play along. Please remember you must use at least one Close to My Heart product in your design.

Here are the two cards the one on the left I used Oxide inks and the one on the right is using regular inks.

For this card I used the Wisteria, Fern, Flamingo, Canary and Glacier inks to loosely color the flowers.

I used sponges and some other sponge tools I have to color.

As you can see the oxide inks are a bit more vibrant. For both of these cards I used the Floral Borders & Sentiments stamp set.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. Did you know you can link your projects from Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, and many other platforms using the url link to your design. You have until May 31st, 2021 to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
