A Twist on Sponge Resist

You will find Pat's tutorial here.
I have not done this technique before. You will need glossy card stock of 
which I had none so my sweet friend Martha sent me some to me. I tried it 
several times with different colors of inks and stamps.For my final card 
I used the single poppy image from the Welcome Poppies Set.
 for the resist. The second step of this technique is to stamp in
 white and I have used one of the small dragonflies for this step but its 
hard to see in the pic. The large dragonfly 
for the last step Both the dragonflies are from the Dragonfly Mini Set.
 My sentiment is from the Today Tomorrow and Always Set and
 cut out with a fancy Spellbinder tag.
 All was matted onto the dark plum. The ribbon was dyed 
to match and a simple little purple flower added.I decided to make
 all my experiments up into some quick cards with a variety
 of sentiments. As you can see you can 
achieve lots of different looks using this technique,
 different stamps and inks. It was fun so why
 not stop by and give it a try.

This is the prize for this weeks winner...
