Make it Monday #233 - Splattering

Hello friends.  Playing along with this weeks Make it Monday challenge where Danielle Flanders shows a few different technique's on adding splattering to your cards and tags.  Danielle made the prettiest Christmas tags and I so badly wanted to just copy her, but my Christmas card stash needs some serious help, so I made a card instead.  Actually 2 cards...yeah for me! :0)  I'm still seriously in love with the Spruce & Sprigs stamp set, and also the Holiday Plaid patterned paper collection, so that was my starting point.  Take a look:



I took my color cues from the plaid...Pinefeather, Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, & Scarlet Jewel.  The sentiment is from O Holy Night (another favorite I'm getting a LOT of use from this season!!) and I stamped it using Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink.  For my splattering I used Aqua Mist refill and a little bit of water to lighten it up just a bit, and then used my Aqua Painter to spatter it on.  I love the way it gives my card a nice full look! :0)

Make sure you check out Danielle's cute, cute tags and her video, and then play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
