Some of the cards I have been playing around with lately involve sponging (there's a surprise!) but little or no stamping. They do invovole a lot of masking and a pile of post-it-notes at the end though.
I get a lot of my inspiration from photo's I see on the net and I really enjoy recreating the scenes on a card. Sometimes they look like the photo and sometimes I put my own spin on them. However they turn out, they are a challenge I love to do!
