Wow'd Myself

I know there must be that technique that intimidates all of us somewhere.  This might be one of the top ones for me.  I don't consider myself to be an artist, the paintbrush kind.  I did find this somewhere and thought I would try it.  It was so easy that I had my club do it and they all did awesome!!
Stamp Set: Lovely As A Tree, Word Play
Paper: Wild Wasabi, White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, So Saffron, Early Espresso, Baja Breeze
Accessories: post it notes, sponge daubers

All I did was use large post it notes to mask the part I wanted to sponge.  Then, I just sponged back and forth to get the color I wanted.  The next time I do it, I'll use a sponge instead of a dauber.  It will give a softer effect.  The dauber was used at the base of the tree too and I didn't just love that.  Just color the "sky" and then stamp the trees over it!  Isn't that beautiful?
