Blessed are the Curious

Yesterday, I  had a crafty Zoom meeting with several friends and one of the techniques we learned about was Geometric Sponging.  Eileen Godwin did a wonderful YouTube video on it here.  

Here is one of the cards I made using her technique.  I chose the colors from the Paper Players Challenge -  Ranger Distress Mustard Seed, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves.

The stamps are from a set I recently purchased - Theories from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.  I added three enamel dots along the tight rope.

I'm linking my card to:

Stamps:  Theories - Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Obsidian - Altenew, Ranger Distress Mustard Seed, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves.
Accessories:  plastic sheet for edge to ink off of, enamel dots - Altenew

Wonderful work on the Eileen Godwin background technique! It's a fabulous scene that makes me think of a tightrope walker with all the coloured spotlights swirling around him!
