Stamping Tip: Sponge and Marker

You know when we want to add a little something to a card element, we often dab a sponge into an ink pad and then gently rub the sponge on the edge of the card stock, just to add a little color and interest.  When I wanted to use Baja Breeze as the sponged color, but my old ink pad was still somewhere in the other room, I decided to see if I could use a marker instead.  It worked!  I used my new Baja Breeze marker (in the new Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog)  to apply a little color to the Stampin' Up! Sponge #101610….I cut mine in quarters.  Then I rubbed the sponge on the edge of the card stock to add a little color.  Maybe others have done this a million times, but I have only used ink before right from the ink pad.  Some other day I will dig out my old In Color ink pads that are now coming back to be some of our "new" Core Colors!  But for this moment, the marker worked fine!

Use a marker to sponge!
