I have to tell you that I got my new IO Dies this week and it was just like Christmas~~~
The hardest thing was to decide which one's I wanted to use first.
As you've seen a few samples of the Sponge and Spritz technique on my blog in the last few weeks, you'll know that I am a total fan of this quick and easy technique.
In designing this card, I first went to find a sentiment that I wanted to showcase
You are my Sunshine......You Make me Happy When Skies are Gray
Evokes lovely memories of singing to Jon when he was a baby
He LOVED when I sang to him and it brought me great joy to bring a smile to his face
Funny, he doesn't seem interested in having me sing to him now (lol)
So, here I am getting off track again
I started with the sentiment, which made me think of a grayish sky background and then of course that gave me the opportunity to use my newest fave technique!!!!
And of course I thought the new Sea bird dies would be perfect against my Stormy Sky
I also had to use a little stickles in the water portion of the card to give it the illusion of Sea Spray!!!
Simple, but Pretty, I think!!!
