CAS Mix Up May 2017

Hello friends.  Playing along with the CAS Mix Up card challenge for this month, where they are asking for Splattering.

My eyes lit up when I saw this challenge...I do LOVE splattering!  In fact, sometimes a little too much!  Like I don't know when to stop sometimes!  But I held it together this time and came up with this:

I couldn't resist starting with some of my new DOX inks (Spiced Marmalade & Worn Lipstick), and I have to tell you, these inks are addicting once you get started!  They blend like you just can't believe!  Laura Bassen always says that certain inks blend like "buttah", and that describes DOX inks to a "T"!!  And then when you combine two of my favorite colors together AND splattering, well, color me happy!!  I splattered with water first and then a little white acrylic paint.  After letting my panel dry overnight, I simply adhered it to a white card base and added a fun and new (to me) die cut from Waffle Flower called Magic Flower Border that I had cut out in white.  To finish I added a banner die cut (PTI"s Quilted: Tag Sale and Keep It Simple: Birthday), and a few sequins.

To complete this challenge I Splattered, die cut, & stamped.  This challenge is open till the 24th, so get out all your splattering tools and play along right HERE.

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