Technique Tuesday -- Making a Scene

Hi and welcome back to Technique Tuesday at Sparkle N Sprinkle. Today I will be making a scene, but not THAT kind of scene! LOL!  Hopefully you are keeping cool since it has warmed up once again.

Supplies needed:
  1. yellow, orange ,blue, purple and black ink pads
  2. sponges
  3. white or cream cardstock
Start with your lightest color -- yellow and start sponging on the color at the top of the card. Next sponge on the orange color.

I went back and sponged some yellow down the center to reflect the light in the water that I will be sponging, and then I sponged on the blue ink.

Then I used purple.

And last I sponged black around the edges to frame it and help the colors to pop.

I wanted a sun on my card,  so I used a circle punch and sponged yellow and orange on it to add to the sky.  I hope you enjoyed the technique today. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and I hope you stop by again next week!

  1. Celestial glitter

  3. Palm Hammock

  5. Life is Sweet
