#13 Card Making for Beginners - Introduction to sponging with masking

Hello there,

Welcome to Week 13 of my Card Making for Beginners series. Whether you are a beginner or not, I hope you will find something helpful and inspirational in these posts. 
Last week we looked at very simple masking and this week we are looking at combining masking with some sponging to create a background. Here is the card we will be making today, CASEd from a pin I found a while ago on Pinterest.

NB Edited to add: The Post It Roll Tape I used for masking doesn't seem to be available any more but CLICK HERE to see something very similar. 

I masked off the top section of the card and also created a circular mask for the moon by punching out a circle from a Post It note. The sponging was done with sections of a sponge using Misty Moonlight, Pacific Point and Seaside Spray stamp pads.

Quite an easy card to make but those masked areas make such an impact. 

If you'd like to watch how to make this card, you can see my video tutorial by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.

I really hope you are enjoying my beginner series and are finding it helpful. Please get in touch to ask me anything - there is so much to learn when you are just starting out.

Happy crafting!
