Sponging technique

Here are a couple of cards I made recently using the sponging technique taught by Paula Dobson.
Marie and Christine you will recognise these.
This one was inspired by Judy Beetson who made a similar styled card which was framed with a Top Note.

Father's Day

With Father's day just around the corner, I thought I'd dig out some masculine cards that you may take inspiration from for Father's Day:)

I just cut pieces by hand for this, sponged the edges of the pieces and used matching brads as collar studs and white gel pen to make faux stitching for pocket. I think the striped DSP is just right for this project. Windsor Knot Pg 135 of current catalogue is perfect.

Totally Tools pg 57 current catalogue was used here along with DSP.

This was a swap I received from convention by Jenny Humphries (Palmerston North). She has used DSP from ther Chocolate Chip range pg 135. Jenny has punched the holes at the bottom right but equally you could push through Vintage Brads pg 149.

Another convention swap, by Pauline Aynsley, Nelson.
Don't you just love the Spiral Punch? pg 152. The stamp set Greetings Eight pg57 and cute & curly pg 153
