Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
I have been trying to get organized enough to participate in some card challenges. Some of these challenges you need a specific layout, some you need specific colors. For this challenge you could only use the colors you see... Turquoise, Orange, Pink and White. I made a few cards for this challenge and I will share one with you today.
I LOVE to play with my Dylusions Paint from Ranger. To play in paint is so freeing! Where ever it lands.. it lands! I had just received my splatter brush made by Tim Holtz (I purchased from Blitsy.. Blisty is my online crafting obsession.. LOL You can save $10 on your first order by using this link. Once you sign up.. you have to complete your purchase within 24 hours for the $10. http://blitsy.com/ref/gz0g7j )
With the splatter tool I randomly flicked paint .. As you can see there is not much control over the matter. I ended up with a large orange blob, but I did not want to mess it up by scraping it off in case I wanted to use that side.
I then took my Pocket Pieces Hello die set from Craftin Desert Divas and cut out the 3 coordinating colors. Once I had these cut out I pondered for a bit what I'd do with them.. left alone and bare looked horrible.. I tried some sequins.. and finally it dawned on me to use my white paint and platter as well. I had already stamped my sentiment, so I took a small piece of paper and covered the sentiment. It is easiest to place whatever you are painting in a box.. this way when it 'splats' it won't ruin anything.
Once I had all of this splattered, I let it set over night to dry.
The sentiment and my die cut 'friend' is from My Creative Time. I just love the friendship set.. So many possibilities..
The final card turned out miraculous .. it is so eye catching that I can not wait to get it mailed to my girlfriend.. I ended up covering that large orange blob I had, but I'm glad I left it there because I wasn't sure. For the friend die cut.. I took my 3 stamp pads and went directly to the letters.. I ended up putting 2 coats on.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
