Default TLC290 ~ Lace Sponging ~ (9/13/10)

Hello everyone!! Are you ready for something fun and simple....well, this is the place!!! We are going to use lace as our stencil and do a little sponging!! How easy is that???!!!???

You can use the lace as the stencil to create a background, layers, scallops, or a background for a sentiment....what ever flips you skirt!!

I have created a tutorial for you showing the steps I used to create a background and some ideas for scalloped layers.You can find the Sponged Lace Tutorial here.

Soooo, you say you don't have any lace...you can use a punched border or any other stencil you have...just have fun!!!

Here is my sample:

Hugs and Prayers

Remember, when uploading to use the keyword TLC290 (no spaces)

You can find the TLC290 gallery here.

I can't wait to see what you create!!!!

Couldn't sleep so I got up and got going at this. This was a lot of fun once I got the right piece of lace. I tried 3 different laces until I found one I could ink through. The final one was a battenburg coaster. So here is my "Lacy Wreath"

Another fun technique, Joan! Great tutorial too. I don't have any lace on hand, but plan to get some in the near futre since I LOVE the effect you got with the fine lace. Thanks for another wonderful challenge!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

TLC290 Happy Halloween by GardenDiva - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I didn't have lace suitable for sponging so used my MS punch and sponged over it for another Halloween card.
Fun challenge Joan.

Wow, I actually had a piece of lace to work with for this technique. Thanks Joan.

I needed a birthday card for my lovely daughter tomorrow so I used one of her favorite color combos. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Finally after 3 different laces I found one that worked for this. Whew! I played with colors too and came up with this one. I also cut one of the flowers from the lace and added it to the card. Thank you for challenging me. I also added some shimmerz to the card but it doesn't show up well.

I had to share...after doing my card, I took my lace curtain into the bathtub and sprayed it down with Simple Green. I lightly scrubbed and then rinsed with cold water and all of the ink came out. I was really glad. I love that Simple Green!

Great card Joan, besides sponging you can also use glitter with your lace. Take a piece of sticky paper. Put your lace over it. Pour fine glitter over it, rub gently to make sure it is well covered. Pull the lace off. Use a soft brush to brush off excess glitter or gently tap card. It is a beautiful technique. They show it at the scrapbook expo.

Finally got a chance to try out this new technique and really liked the effect. The blue lace reminded me of waves so I put my look to use with a beachy image to make a card for my Cape Cod aunt. Cape Cod Birthday by mamaxsix - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
