Kitchen Tile Happy Card

I received a natural wool sea sponge as a gift recently and decided to play with it and my Bister powders and this card is the result. I am calling it my Kitchen Tile card because the look reminds me of a a kitchen counter top or floor. I created 3 puddles of water on my craft mat and mixed in brown, black and natural Bisters colored crystals, then dabbed the colors onto a glossy sheet with my sea sponge until I was happy with the look. I die cut the new Memory Box circles die and the Happy (My Creative Time) in black and attached. I stamped the rest of the sentiment (also from My Creative Time) and layered onto a black card base. The result was a CAS masculine happy card that I am going to share in classes soon.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.

I love the sponged look. Another way to use those powders and get a fantastic look. And, your card is super wonderful!

What a great card - love how you have created the background, and the simple black embellishments and stamping is perfect.
