And STILL More Technique Cards

Okay...I am sure you may be getting tired of these, but I have been having so much fun!  This first card is using a similar technique to the others recently posted...I took a template and masked off the rectangle...I then sponged on various colors of ink and then overlapped some images in the background. I finished it off with an awesome saying from Wordsworth stamps.  I loved the color combo!

Next up is a card using sponging and various background stamps.  The focal image is from Just for Fun Stamps (I think)..the sentiment is from Whipper Snapper.

The next three cards feature more of the embossed image that is overlayed with sponged color and images. I decided to try to use a colored cardstock behind instead of white.  It is definitely a more subtle look, but I likey! This pink delight uses a tree stamp from Hero Arts and the sentiment is also from a Hero Arts sentiment set.
Since Fall is one of my favorite times of  the year, I decided to try some earthy colors and leaves/trees.  These were done on kraft cardstock.The leaf is an old PSX stamp, the sentiment is from a Hero Arts Sentiment Set and the acorn is from Printworks. The large tree is from Art Impressions and the sentiment is from the same Hero Arts Sentiment Set.
The final one to share is for a loved one of someone in the EMF family...They were diagnosed with breast cancer.  This card was using a set from an unknown company from years ago.  I think it is one of those small unmounted rubber sets.  I used the ribbon as the focal point and the set had many words of encouragement which I used to create the text in the background.  I wanted her to know that she has many people on her side!

There are several on this page that say Thinking of You. Most of the ones near the bottom were done by clear embossing on paper and stamping/sponging over the embossing to achieve the resist.

Beautiful cards and your technique is terrific! I live near you and I run a card and paper craft ministry at my church. Thanks for some lovely inspiration!
