Sponged background

So many ideas going through my many things you can do with paper, ink and stamps....good thing I had some serious cleaning to do so that I could think about a card. An old farm house that we were renting out came empty........ There is a lot of cleaning required so hopefully that will mean lots of card ideas, LOL!
If you need time to think, come on over and bring your gloves.....Just kidding!
I have used a Penny Black flower on glossy paper. The bg is inked sponged on, I did this first before I stamped. After I had stamped the flower, I sprayed some glimmermist over it and then I wiped it off with a tissue , I wasn't sure if I was gonna reck the image but it didn't.
It gave it a softer look, which I like.
Then I had to add some stickles and voila, the card was made.
Have a great day and thanks for looking, Anja

What a beautiful card!!! That image is perfect for sponging, and it turned out SO well.
I bought some spray stuff, but I haven't used it yet - now I'm going to look for it!
