Luna sponged heart

Hello and Happy Saturday everyone!

Today, I’ve been trying out a new technique – applying Cosmic Shimmer luna paste with a sponge. I would never have thought of it, but I saw Simon Hurley’s video about sponging glitter paste (via the new CAS Stencil challenge blog) and thought I’d give it a whirl with luna paste.

I used the Mosaic Heart stencil by Simon Says Stamp and I love how it turned out – the coverage is much thinner than applying it with a palette knife, but it’s still so shimmery in real life!

I was originally planning to cut part of the stencilled heart off to create my CAS card (the heart is really quite large!), but I couldn’t quite bring myself to do so! Instead, I cut around it so that part of the image hangs off the edge, preserving the beautiful heart!

To finish off the card, I added a die cut sentiment also by Simon Says Stamp.

I’m entering this into a number of challenges:

CAS Stencil challenge – sponging

Time Out challenge – loving

Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – stencil

Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – something new (my new Moonlight Sea luna paste)

Thanks for stopping by!
