I am sharing today with you a card I made using a Broken Box Stock digital image named Walking Buddies.    I worked this time with the black & white version because I wanted to create a sponged scene.

I am submitting this card to the sketch #124 challenge at Operation Write Home and to the Crafty Month celebration Challenge day #16 of Kim Kesti.  For my card I am using a new digital stamp image and some old cardstock, ribbon and button.

One of the thinks I like about digital stamps is how easily you can manipulate the image to obtain a desire result.  For example, in the case of this image, I deleted the girls in order to have a background image to work with.  Then, I printed the image in both cardstock and paper copy.  I used the paper copy version to create a mask for my sponging.  Here are a few pics of my creating process:

Here are the image ready to have the green applied:

Here I am ready to apply the brown ink to make the walking path:

Here I already applied all the colors, you can see the completed background 
ready to add a  few details to add some texture and dimension.

Here is a view of the used mask:

Finally I colored the girls, paper pieced the images and glued them to my background.  

Here are a few pics of my finished card:

I hope you have a great day tomorrow.  Now I am off to watch some TV and have dinner with my hubby.  Hope you like my card and that my creative process has some value to yours.
