Just wanted to show you an attempt at sponging ink.  I was NOT happy with the end result but thought I would share with you to show you how NOT to do it!!!

I like the layout of the card but I think I was way too heavy handed with the inks.
Never mind, I will try again!

Thank you for stopping by and please don't be put off after seeing this!!

Take care

  1. Well I'm I can't understand why you're not happy with it Jan. It looks fine to me and I enlarged it to take a closer look! Ye, there's some mottling, but it looks like an overall design element so don't be so hard on yourself.

    I read somewhere the other day that if you get harsher lines (or patches you don't like), go over them with a lighter colour to blend them more. Just trying to help!

    1. Thank you for your comments Sarn and I will what you have suggested.

  2. Love it Jan, you are way too critical, it's a design feature! I'm experimenting and finding a gentle buffing action with a light colour ink on a sponge, to gradually build up colour, gives a more even finish, but I like this look too. There is no 'wrong' in craft! xxx

  3. I agree with Lesley, you are too self critical. I think it's fantastic and so deliciously dimensional, and the colours are scrumptious as well. X

  4. I like this card! Sponging ink is beautiful as all colors, flowers and layout!
    Hugs, Ileana
