This first one shows how the sponging can make a negative word a little more legible. It defines the edges in the areas where the leaves (or flowers, or stars, or whatever image you choose to use) don't overlap the die cut.
Next up, I have an example of stamping around the outer edge of a shaped die cut. Again, the sponging helps define the edges and fill in the gaps in the stamping. If you tried to completely overlap the images the design might get too cramped or busy, so the sponging gives you a little breathing room.
My last sample shows how you can use this same concept on the inside of a die cut shape (if you're, say, using the negative as your mask). Again, it's an ideal way to define your edges without having to add an extra layer of cardstock.
I hope this little tip has helped you today. Thank you so much for joining me. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again very soon!
