1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Sponging Questions. on: January 17, 2009 08:00:03 AM
So I did a search on the forum and found search results for "sponge" but nothing seemed to fit my question.  (in retrospect, i probably should've searched more terms such as "sponging" and "sponged") I also tried a google search for "scrapbooking sponge" with no good answers.  This is probably because i'm quite ... impatient and hate searching through answers of useless information with little hope that i'll find what i need.

My question is this:  I've seen several cards in the manner of the one at the link at the bottom of the page, but no one ever explains how to do them.  It's like an antique looking finish, the brown border.  I'm thinking that it's done with a sponge, but, as i said, i can't seem to confirm that anywhere or the techniques used.  Has anyone else done this or heard of this? 

Thanks!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Be Gentle, it's my first time... on: January 13, 2009 07:15:06 PM
This is my first post of my work, so I'm slightly nervous.  I've crafted several cards of late.  Most were done before christmas.

               

This last one I just whipped up this evening.  It's for my MIL's birthday.  I like it because it is fitting for her gift.  We bought her a gift card to tastebook.com.
          


There are pictures of two more cards in the gallery listed below, but they're rather fuzzy so I didn't want to post them here.  Comments and criticisms are very welcome!
