General Techniques

Sponging Color with Inks by April Williams

Today I will be making a scene, but not THAT kind of scene! LOL!  Create a fast and easy custom background with this easy and fun technique using inks. This technique may be used on glossy card stock as well with pigment inks.

Supplies needed:

  1. yellow, orange ,blue, purple and black ink pads
  2. sponges
  3. white or cream cardstock

Start with your lightest color -- yellow and start sponging on the color at the top of the card.

Next sponge on orange.

I went back and sponged some yellow down the center to reflect the light in the water that I will be sponging, and then I sponged on the blue ink.

Then I used purple.

And last I sponged black around the edges to frame it and help the colors to pop.

I wanted a sun on my card,  so I used a circle punch and sponged yellow and orange on it to add to the sky.  I hope you enjoyed the technique today. Thanks for stopping by.
