I love using punches in different ways and knew that there was a floral possibility with this one. The bulb is punched multiple times to create the petals. Using a sponge dauber they have their edges coloured before

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – All about sponges

Instead of working with a particular stamp set at last week’s Card & Cuppa classes, I chose to focus on a set of tools instead. The tools were sponges. The background uses one of the Decorative Masks and a Sponge Brayer to apply the colours. Here it’s Lovely Lipstick with Cajun Craze over the top.
