Trying a New Technique

Julee Tilman of Verve Stamps put forward a challenge through Our Creative Corner to try the Vintage Values technique. I didn't get time to actually try the technique before the timeline ran out on the challenge, but I still completed it anyway. I have been looking to improve my skills with a sponge!

This is a pretty simple card. I provided a link to the sponging technique and I couldn't write it up better than it is. The only other "trick" on the card is the clear rhinestones (you know, the ones that look like faux diamonds) that I colored black with a Sharpie!
