Tutorial- Sponged Background
After removing the masks, I sponged the Pumpkin Pie around the outer edge of the moon/sun and finished off any white areas with the Wild Wasabi around the grass area as well.
Using the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (EF), I embossed a piece of Wild Wasabi and sponged Elegant Eggplant over the Wild Wasabi (to show the raised detail of the EF). I attached the Pumpkin Pie layer over Elegant Eggplant, adhered the embossed Wild Wasabi piece over the Pumpkin Pie and mounted the focal image.
Using the Color Spritzer Tool with the Elegant Eggplant marker, I “spritzed” the entire card. Stamped the sentiment below the picture with “Best Wishes” from the Short & Sweet set.
I took a small piece of Pumpkin Pie 5/8” Satin Ribbon and folded in half, lined it up with the corner, punched through with the 1/16” hand held punch and inserted an Antique Brad. I have posted the finished card again to the left for reference.
This masking technique works great for scenes of all colors- give it a try yourself and have some fun!
