A Special Moment

'Enjoy the moment'.....that speaks to me.  I think we get so busy in our everyday life that we forget about what is happening right now.  One of my favourite techniques to play with is sponging.  I made a card similar to this so decided to use that design for this card.  I am playing in two challenges today; one is the Inspiration challenge at Splitcoast and the Ombre Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
I masked the side of my card then started with the lightest colour of Distress inks that I have near the bottom of my card and gradually started adding more blues until I finished at the top with the darkest blue I had overlapping them and blending together.  I did add a bit of green at the bottom as well.  The trees are from Northwoods stamps; they have such a majestic feel to them.  The sentiment is from Daisy Bucket.  I finished it off by sprinkling water onto the blue and then adding the scoring lines and the twine. 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look and hope you have a great weekend..
