The CAS challenge for this week is to use sponging. I love sponging, and if you take a look in the CAS94 gallery, you will find many, many ways to use it. That is what I love about sponging - you can achieve a variety of different looks with it.
I decided to sponge my background on this card.
I really like the texture the watercolor paper gives to this image. It adds just enough interest without being overly obvious. I tried spritzing the background with water to get a watercolored look, but didn't notice any change with the chalk ink. *Note to self to use dye ink if I want that effect.*
This card looks much prettier IRL. The colors are very rich, and I could not get a good photo no matter what I tried, so just imagine it being a lot more vibrant!
