Yesterday I shared a project with you that turned out a lot better than I dreamed it would. I wanted to play around with the Bloom for You single stamps (coordinates with the Fun Flower punch) to create an image with Autumn colors. I employed my sponge daubers to do all the work for me – and my selection of colors (Hello Honey, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip) worked well to create the color and texture of a leaf at the tail end of Fall. I brightened up the rest of the card with bold accents of these three colors and added a smooth, shiny dome of Crystal Effects to the top of the button. Here’s my card from yesterday:

I was so happy with how the flower turned out (I wasn’t expecting it to look this gorgeous) I decided to film a quick video to share the Sponge Dauber technique. Enjoy!
