Masculine Card sponged and masked

Even though this qualifies as a masculine card, I would still love to receive it :-)

This card was a project at today’s stamp camp and a favorite of most of the stampers.  It uses a stamp set called Wetlands and a sponging technique made easy with Post-it-notes.  You can see a video tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIZw-efOAzw and while you’re there, subscribe to my YouTube channel 😉

I love this card because it reminds me of home.  I’ve always lived near the water in Alabama, Texas and now California and would be in heaven with a home on the beach!

The Wetlands stamp set is perfect for masculine cards and includes three different greetings in that really pretty font.

Wetlands

Wetlands (wood mount) #126695
Price: $21.95
Wetlands (clear mount) #126697
Price: $16.95To create the above card, you’re going to mask the top part of the Whisper White cardstock (cover about 1 3/4″ with post-it-notes) and sponge Pacific Point ink in a soft circular motion to create the water.  Sponge the bottom part with Crumb Cake, again in a soft circular motion.  Remember to go lightly at first since you can always add more ink but you cannot take it away.  Remove the mask and sponge Soft Sky across the top – you guessed it – in a soft circular motion :-)  Stamp your birds and greeting in Black Stazon and the grasses in Garden Green.  Add some Linen Thread and layer to Crumb Cake cardstock.

What is your favorite stamp set to use for creating a masculine card?
