Hi everyone. I’ve been splattering…..and have had to restrain myself from going too far. I made several cards this evening, a variety on a theme, and just couldn’t resist using a new splattering tool from Stamps By Me.
I’ve had this little thing for a little while now, and it’s only when I was making this card that I remembered it. It makes it so easy to splatter colours – as you can see.
I used water-colour card and stamped the Stamps By Me heart in Versafine black onyx, then heat embossed with clear. I took my Spectrum Noir markers – not used them for absolutely ages – and coloured using just the one red colour. I then took some colours of inks, put them on an acrylic block, sprayed with water, grabbed by splatter tool thingy – and off I went!
I really like the look of this, and I even think it remains quite clean and simple – probably, anyway!
Then I turned to a Stamps By Me die for the sentiment, cut it out four times using black card, stacked them up, and added to the card. Here comes the boo boo! I then die cut the square…..yep….you guessed it! The layers of die cut sentiment spread out, came away from each other and made a right old mess!
Can you imagine? What a silly billy! But – I managed to remove all of the layers of the sentiment except one, so I then die cut them all again – another four times – and layered them on top of each other……gosh. I think I managed to save the day. My advice? Do NOT die cut anything once you have added stacked layers!!!!
I shall be entering the following challenges:
CAS on Sunday – CAS markers or pens
Just Add Ink – Romance
Just Us Girls – Love
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – Love is in the air
Aud Sentiments Challenge – valentine or love sentiment

Very pretty card. I like the splatters. Never heard of the brush.. When I splatter EVERYTHING gets splattered. Even when I put it in a box.. I guess I need higher sides. I do love the fun flower shape heart and colors. Very pretty. So glad you shared over at Aud Sentiments.

Thank you very much. The brush bits are quite rigid, so more directional splatters… 😁
