Happy Monday everyone! Not only is is a new week – but it is also a new challenge over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!
And since Thing 2 is challenging us to pair with Joy of sets – here is their TicTacToe board
I went with the diagonal from top left down to bottom right. It matches perfectly with Double Trouble. So here’s my card!
I used the adorable Birds and the Bees set by Honey Bee stamps
Birthday card, check – Things that fly, check – Sponging? Check! But it might be different than what you are used too with sponging! I don’t even own sponges anymore because it’s been so many years since I used a standard sponging technique. So I took a microbrush (used for eyelash extensions and has a tiny little sponge-type tip on it) and carefully added shading to the centers of the blossoms and throughout the beehive. A sponging type of shading! It’s all about getting creative with our stuff right?! I have those on hand for glue application of tiny die cuts and I’m glad I tried them for something else
I added some sequins all around this branch and hive scene for some sparkle and shine
And my fun birthday card is finished 🙂
So glad you’d stop by to see it! Have a wonderful week and be sure to go play along with these challenges!
