Magic Sponge Creations


I took a class this weekend at RubberStamp Fantasy in Marietta, Ga.  It was taught by RoseMary Marino.  We used the magic sponges to create backgrounds.  I don’t remember the name of the sponge but it is similar to ColorBox stylus with the black rubber that you can heat up and then get an impression on the stylus.
