Lovely As a Tree and Wetlands

Happy Monday! Yes, I am back to share a couple of cards I made by using the sponging technique along with stamping over each stamp to add dimension.  I found it on Pinterest and loved the card, so thought I would try it myself.  You can find the original post here, and the Pinterest link here
Now I took two sheets of paper cut the width of the card, 5 1/2 and put a few dots of adhesive on them, rubbed my fingers over them to soften the adherence of it and then placed one at the top of the card and one at the bottom to be able to sponge the center. (I think she used sticky notes for the card on Pinterest, regardless same effect.)  I used midnight muse for the sky and mellow moss for the grass.  Leaving the paper on top and bottom, I then stamped the trees in a lighter green, then a little darker green, took the paper off the top and bottom and then stamped the trees in black.  So, so easy.
I just love this one layer card and so, so easy.
I also had to do the inside of the card.

And then I decided to do another one with the same technique, just a different stamp set and I loved it even more.  I just love these little birds from the SU Wetlands stamp set.  I actually used the same two pieces of paper for the top and bottom and sponged with crumb cake ink for sand and pool party for the ocean.  Took the bottom paper off and put about a 1/4 inch from the top paper to be able to make a sky line.  Then removed both papers and started stamping.  So what do you think?

And all I did for the inside is stamp the beach looking shrubs.  You would think since I live at the beach, I would know what they are called, wouldn't you?

Thanks for stopping by and looking today.  I was motivated on Saturday and hope it helps to motivate you.  Enjoy your week.
