Are you ready for some fun today?  This is the card for you!  Today I am going to teach you how to use sponge daubers to create the look you want on your stamps.

I choose the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle as it works really well with this fun technique!  I did do a video for this card and will include the link below.  The video shows a lot of different inks used to create some other wonderful color combinations.

Below are the card cuts, instructions, supply list and video link.
