Sorta distressed...

My card that is! LOL! I made this card to show at the Gina K release party, but then didn't. I wasn't too sure about it. I started out with the thought in mind to distress the whole card, but then only did the sponging like I wanted, I LOVE how that turned out. Here is the card:




I used the new Nautical Netting from Gina K Designs to do the sponging on it like a mask. I just used a bit of tape to kinda hold it in place, the non permanent kind, and started sponging. AND this stuff holds sponging too! The netting is actually a more lighter color IRL. And then I just used the piece I had used for the sponging as an accent on the card too. I wish I had of distress the edges of the paper, then I think I would have like it better...not real happy with how it turned out, my rose's coloring kinda blah...oh well, I wanted to post because I think using the netting for a mask was pretty cool, lol! The rose if from Asela's newest set from Gina K Designs.

Here is one card I did show at the release party:



I was going for a night time scene, with a big ole new moon rising! And how it looks kinds foggy sometimes. I have only been to the ocean 3 times in my lifetime, but this was one scene I did see, soo gorgoues, how the moon sparkles on the water, which mine isnt doing THAT justice, lol! Anyways, I do like how this card turned out, lol! I added the stripes on the lighthouse too.

And I will be posting more tomorrow, I decided not to bombard you all in one post, LOL!

And on Friday, I will be posting another guest spot using Theresa Momber's brand new set from Gina K, and you will have a chance to win that set!

Ok, think that's it for today! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, back to the grind tomorrow, huh? I won't rub it in that I don't work, lol! Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderfully creative week!

I love the sponging you did with the netting - free patterned paper! The whole look is lovely and balanced. The sponging on the lighthouse is amazing - saw it on Gina's site :)
