Sponged Stripes on Yellow Gingham

Something different today - sponged diagonal stripes.  I love these colors and patterns together.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Neenah solar white, Papertrey Ink (PTI) new leaf (green), Hawaiian shores (deep aqua), and the gingham print from PTI lemon tart pattern pack.
  • Dies are PTI wonderful words: hello and super star border.  
  • Sponged inks are Ranger mustard seed (yellow), peacock feathers (turquoise), and mowed lawn (green) from the distress mini ink pad kit #1 and kit # 2.  I masked with strips of paper.  Note: the white stars are adhered on top of the sponged pattern, not masked.
  • Sponged with a wedge cut from Hero Arts silky stamping sponge.   The whole sponge is about 2-1/2" diameter and 1" thick, with a very nice texture.  The distress ink rinsed out easily when I was done.
