"It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC17)! This week we are introducing our first Flourishes Guest Challenge Host Connie McCotter(cmc2stamp)! Thanks so much Connie for hosting this week!! Connie is challenging us to sponging. Sponge coloring, sponge distressing, sponge shading, and sponge stenciling to name a few are some of the hottest techniques in stamping. So, grab you ink pad and sponges and add a little sponging to your card. We would love to see what you create!"
Here is the rest of the team's creations:
My sponging on this card is subtle, but it really adds some depth to the card. I started by sponging ink on the inside of my houndstooth Cuttlebug folder and then ran the kraft cardstock through. Then I used a darker brown to sponge the edges and corners and random places on the embossing.
The image is another fantastic couple of images from diy Topiary. SO much fun! And I am getting so much Copic practice! :) The background was airbrushed (and yes, the cat is still grey and black :)).
Can't wait to see what your take on the challenge is!! thanks for stopping by!

BTW-With all the airbrushing I have been doing, of course my air can ran out. So, DH went to the hardware store and bought a few adaptors, so I could hook my system to the air compressor. For details on how you can do this read the Copic Website.
