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

You can find the TLC290 gallery here.

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

Looks like fun. Now if I can just find a piece of lace. I'll have to look in the morning.

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"

hobbydujour 09-13-2010 02:26 AM

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!

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.

What fun this sounds like. I'll have to wait till I'm home from babysitting my DGD! That gives me all day to think about this technique!

Well, I couldn't find my lace, so I used a glimmer screen instead. Here's my sponged butterfly.

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!

mouseyr61 09-15-2010 03:33 AM

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.

stampkinz 09-15-2010 04:22 AM

This was a great technique! Here are my LACE BUTTERFLIES

mamaxsix 09-15-2010 08:52 AM

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
