Sunshine -- and shadows

Last week, I told you I had a great example of the difference a little sponging can make. I started with a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches that was a little more complex than I usually use. I pulled out my favorite (this week) DSP, and started to play with the colors and components. Here's the result:

I didn't like this card. It's OKAY, but it doesn't come together like it should. Not even a desperation brad was making it right!


I let it sit.

On my desk.

For a week.

I stared at this card every day and could NOT figure out what it needed. Until I posted last week's card and had the greatest eureka moment of all time. SPONGING!! Sponging helps pop layers of DSP like magic -- AND it helps unify different patterns and colors.

A little card surgery, some mad sponging, and a little reconstruction, and this card is now something I can show you all.
