H2H - Love Your Crazy Side Diagonal Stripe Card

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

The theme this week is sponging. There are a lot of ways that sponging can be done - I chose to sponge the background of my card. 

I started by using three widths of washi tape and masked off the entire card. I pulled every third piece off and sponged on the first colour. Those sections had to be covered and then the next sections were peeled off and sponged. Finally the last colour was done. I added a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls to the card to create a shimmery effect. That piece was die cut using the Stiched Rectangle Thin Cuts. 

The sentiment was stamped and die cut. "I Love" was die cut in black and the other three sections were stamped in black on Lagoon cardstock. Those were also die cut and then a piece of twine was tied in a small bow and attached to the edge of each piece. I added some Black Bursts and a coloured sparkle in the centre of each one. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you use sponging on your project.
