Just Us Girls #132...Oh my lordy bees!

Oh goodness gracious!  It's time for a brand new Just Us Girls challenge!  This week Lisa challenges us to try the sponge a layer technique. 

Check it!  Me.  Queen of lumpy cards has a (OMG!) flat card this week!  Those ribbon banners are simply sponged on ink!  Woohoo!  I cut a ribbon banner using Spellbinders pennant banner nestibilities from cardstock and used the negative as a mask for inking up this card.  And seeing how this card and it's birthday wishes go out late to the recipient, I am rest assured that the delivery won't be held up by a lumpy embellishment that jams the envelope up in the postage cancellation machine at the post office! huh.  I could get used to this CAS stuff I think! 

Proof!  This card is FLAT, no bumps but still packs alot of visual punch, I think, with the gorgeous ink colors that have been swiped on.  Ready for a few more projects that will have you scrambling to your ink pads and applicators?

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll join us for this fun technique this week.
