Miss you - Creative with Stamps # 4 - Ink Splatters

Friday July 1, 2016

So are you having fun playing along??
I love that each month we have a new challenge and there are so many creative players. I cant wait to see the creative ideas you come up with for this month long challenge.
(remember you can only enter 3 different cards per month)

The challenge is Ink Splatters

This is my card.. third attempt.. LOL ..  for this card I used watercolor paper and used purple, blue and pink ranger inks smeared out on my craft sheet, spritzed with water then laid my watercolor paper in it. I dried it and then kept adding it to the ink puddles till I got the effect I wanted.  I then took some SU white ink and added just a little water and splattered it over the piece. I dried it with heat gun and also let some of the heaver ink splatters dry on their own. Later I came in with black in and SU silhouette flowers and also Gina K botanicals stamps and sentiment. I then mounted it onto a piece of blue SU paper and then onto the white recollection base.  This card is stunning in person. The colors are awesome.
