Back to Basics: How to do the Sponging Technique on Card Stock

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set, item #115026 - wood only

Using the sponging technique on any card or punched out image can add such depth and dimension. In this video I show how you can do this sponging technique easily with our Stamping Sponges or Sponge Daubers.

Stamping Sponges, item #101610 (3 to a package)
Sponge Daubers, item #102892 (12 to a package)

I always cut my sponges into 6 pieces using my Paper Snips (scissors), item #103579. I wash both the sponges and the sponge daubers out with warm water and soap, rinse thoroughly and then air dry. If needed you can clean them with Stampin' Mist, item #102394 but not really necessary.

If you are reading this blog entry via e-mail, you will need to visit MY BLOG to view the video.



Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoyed the video.

Great video, Mary. I love the sponged look. I often do that on my pieces.

Thanks so much for that tutorial! I love the effect and am still learning the techniques.

Thanks for speaking about the difference between the large sponges and the denseness (if that's a word) of the daubers.
