Sweet Stamps Stippling or Sponging

 This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are stippling or sponging.
 I stamped the newly released image Queen Anne's Wildflower Silhouette in Brownie shades die ink onto text DSP from the Kaisercraft Black and White Timeless 6x6 pad.  I used another newly released image on the card background from the Decorative Elements set HERE. First, I randomly stamped the image, then I sponged the Kraft cardstock in brown.
You can see the sponging effect better with the card open aka the original Kraft

And, on the inside a little stamping- simple but I like the effect
  I was wanting to try a new Technique Junkies Technique from the latest newsletter, so I got out my fall colored Shades die inks and had some fun:
The layout is a CASE from Judy Jackson's newsletter sample. This is another new image from the new release called Mums the Word.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my cards:
Queen Anne's Wildflower Silhouette
Mums the Word
Decorative Elements Set
Sentiment- (inside) HERE
Shades Die Inks HERE   I used Brownie, Tank, Dandelion, Paprika
Kaiserkraft Black and White 6x6 Designer paper HERE

These are both awesome! I LOVE the colors on the first card, it's so vintage looking, and the Decorative Elements stamping for the background sponged layer adds such a nice touch! Great fall colors on the 2nd card, love how the Mums silhouette goes off the colored strip!
