Christmas Card - Sponge A Scene

I always wanted to try to create a landscape scene on a card, this is quite a large card being 9 inches long but I really enjoyed the techniques used to create this scene. I know my Dad will appreciate this type of Christmas Card being the creative soul he is and loving a challenge. It was a difficult card to photograph, I think this is because  of the sponging technique that was used in the tutorial. I prefer to use my dauber and sponge in a very soft circular motion. I find it a lot easier to add more color as with the darker colors it makes it harder to blend if you use a heavy hand.

Here is the Tutorial for this type of card by Carol Gatton, you will see what I mean with her sponging she seems to do it quite heavily in the centre where I prefer a soft circular motion hardly touching the cardstock, I find this leaves a lot softer finished look.
