I don’t think it’s true, but maybe I’ve created a new technique. Well, I couldn’t find it anywhere on the web. I’ve used Stampin’ Up! Sponge Brayers to create a plaid pattern on some Whisper White card stock. A young woman I know is due to give birth to her baby boy any day now. Here’s the card I created for her and her family.
