ODBDSLC210 - Sponging or Stencils

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is a Sponging or Stencils.  Join us here for all of the details.

I chose sponging for my card and used it on the leaves that go with my ODBD Dahlia which was water colored with markers and a water pen on watercolor paper.  I layered the banner on ODBD paper from the Heart and Soul Collection, it has the perfect lace edge to go across the middle of the card.  The top background was embossed with an inked embossing folder.

ODBD Stamps Used: Dahlia, Pennant Alphabet Solids
ODBD Paper Used: Heart and Soul Collection
ODBD Dies Used: Pennant Dies

Other Supplies: Twine, heat embossing, markers, water pen, foam tape, embossing folder, Spellbinder leaf die.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
