For this technique you will need 3 pieces of acetate and repositional tape. The pieces should be #1- 4 x 2 3/4. #2- 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 with a center cut out of 2 3/4 x 1 1/2. #3- 2 1/2x 1 1/4. Take a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 white card stock base and score at 4 1/4 and fold. Take #1 and using the positional tape adhere it to the front of the card.
Start sponging your colors starting with the lightest color. Fill in with the other colors and then go back over all of it with the lightest color to blend.
Leave #1 in place and stamp a design all around the sponged area.
Remove the acetate and this is what you will have.
Now using the repositional tape place #2 over the top of your card. Add #3 to the center of the opening and sponge with the colors used earlier between your 2 pieces.
Remove both #2 and #3 and stamp your sentiment in the opening. You have now made a Clean & Simple card with no layers that looks like it has several.
