Technique Time Tuesday

The first Tuesday of the month means a new Technique to share for Technique Time Tuesday
Water Stamping

I hope you enjoy my card, especially because I worked really hard
I was NOT having a good crafty weekend :(

I have to admit that I tried 4 times before I got my sponged background colors just right
I have some well used sponges and realized that I need to buy some new ones or a blending tool
I used Close to My Heart inks in the following colors:
Amethyst, Bubblegum and Sunny Yellow
To go along with this wonderful ribbon I had in my stash
Then I tried some more just to get the right water stamped impression
Some of the images I chose just were not making good impressions on my paper
Yeah! I FINALLY had success with this background swirl stamp I had in my drawer
Oh My!...You should see the mess I left on my desk! 
Don't be afraid to try this technique, I am HAPPY I stuck it out and got it done
I hope you will check out the rest of the Design Team creations over at the challenge blog
It's so much FUN to get inspired to try something new when you see the possibilities
I can't wait to see what you come up with
Thanks for stopping by today - Catch the Frenzy! - Karen
