Sponged Emboss Resist Snowflake

Here is a technique that I was reminded of when I received my monthly SU Impressions magazine, which explains how to do it.
Here I have simply stamped the snowflake (from Serene Snowflakes) embossed with clear embossing powder and then sponged with Night of Navy. The sentiment is from Curly Cute.

  6. Kate, did you use a triangle make-up sponge? The line effect is truly eye catching. The whole idea is magnificent...

  9. I love your card! I've looked everywhere for this technique in sponging and can't find it. I also can't find the SU magazine you mention. Can you please help point me in the right direction? I have a class on Saturday that would go crazy over a card like this. Thanks so much!

  10. Hello love your card! Please can you explain your sponging technique you used for the blue? What tool did you use to get the lines so straight? What did you use to apply the ink?

  12. I used an artists circle sponge - SU sell them, and I cut it into 8 pieces. I then simple squeezed the spong into a thin wedge and applied ink from an ink pad to the sponge. Start at the centre and work your way out to the edges. I did 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock , 9 o'clock then 12 o'clock then the ones in between. Hope that this helps
