Stamping With Sponge Daubers

Stamping with sponge daubers is an easy and fun way to add multiple colors and blending to your stamped images. Just as I did with these mittens, the smaller mittens were inked up in Perfect Plum and I added some Elegant Eggplant onto the tips of them with a sponge dauber, then stamp onto your card stock.  It gives a beautiful two toned look to the mittens. You could get a similar technique with the old rock and roll, but I think the sponge daubers allow you to blend those colors together more making it look more seamless.      
You can see it more on this tulip card.  The base was stamped in Powder Pink with a little Berry Burst sponged on the sides.  Then the front of the tulip was stamped with Berry Burst and Fresh Fig sponged onto to it.  The transition of colors is seamless and gives lots of depth and dimension.  Finally the leaves and steams were also stamped the same way in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green.  So pretty!  I'll share my last technique on Monday! See you then!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!
