Birthday Postage…

Hello Stampers ~

Yikes … I’m getting behind in my blogging duties!  lol

I’m a little excited about today’s post – I’ve been wanting to use the “Postage Due” stamp set for a long time.  Last night I finally sat down and began stamping.  Wow, how easy it was to make this card, all the collage work is done for you!

I decided to do a simple “Sponging” Technique using a of couple of colors and see what happened … I used “Pool Party” and “Wisteria Wonder”.  I was pleased with how nice they look together, and fit well with this design.

I just stamped the “Postage Due” image onto Whisper White with the Black StazOn and the began to sponge.  I started with the Pool Party, leaving the center white, and then added the Wisteria.  I also added some color to my punched additions using the sponges. 

It’s hard to see from the photo, but I stamped the background using VersaMark.
