SSSD-June Technique-2 ways to change a sponged background

Hi ladies this month we're going to change a sponged background using 2 different techniques. We're going to start with 2 pieces of regular card stock. Mine are cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. You'll nee 3 colors od dye inks and sponges. Distress ink works excellently with these techniques. 

Start with the lightest color and sponge different areas of each. Then continue with the other 2 colors. You can take your lightest color once again and go over it blending the inks.

        This is very simple. We will be using one piece of card stock for this portion of the tutorial. Get yourself a cup of water and flick the water at your card stock.

This is what you will end up with and the bigger the drops of water the bigger the water mark on your card stock. Set this piece aside to dry and lets move on to the next part.
Take your other piece of card stock, some Versa Mark and clear embossing powder. Pat the Versa Mark all over your piece covering the whole thing.

                                           Sprinkle with the embossing powder.

                  Take a score tool or a bone folder and score your piece first in one direction.

                                                             And then in the other.

                                                           Heat with your heat tool.

                              Now use your 2 pieces to create your card for the technique swap.
                                                              Have fun.
