Merry Christmouse - Hand Stamped Sentiments #250 & Fab Friday #99

I had a bit of fun today learning how to make a different background using sponging technique, spritzing and an embossing folder.  I don't have a name for this technique, but it is a lot of fun and it has a wow factor.

This card combines 2 challenges - a colour challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments, and a sketch challenge with Fab Friday


The background was made first by sponging all 3 colours of the challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments i.e. Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim randomly on a piece of Whisper White so that the entire surface is covered.

Here's how I created the background:
On an open Woodlands Embossing Folder (on the side opposite to the side with the logo). I generously spritzed some water.  I then placed  the spritzed folder  upside down on the sponged art piece and left for a few seconds.  It looked pretty awful when I first took it off, but after the background dried the effect was "wow".  Of course, because I was impatient, I dried it with the heat tool. Below you see a close up.

The background piece was trimmed to 3 3/4 by 5", the edges sponged with Dapper Denim, and then layered with Emerald Envy.  A piece of 3/8" ruffled Dapper Denim ribbon was then adhered to these two layers after which it was adhered to a Whisper White layer and finally to the Dapper Denim card base.

The image of the mouse was coloured with Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy markers.  Some dazzling diamonds was added to the image. The image was die cut using the layering circles framelit and the edge sponged with Emerald Envy.  This circle was adhered to a larger dazzling diamond circle with dimensionals.  The final layer is a Emerald Envy scalloped circle. The entire unit is adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
