"Splatter Fun"

Just Having a Bit of Fun

Sometimes we get so busy trying new things, and different techniques, that we don't really know what it is that we actually love to do...
I have never really known what my style is, but I am just starting to
 discover what I love to do...and embrace it.
Ripping paper for a mask is one of the the things that I always love to play around with.
This card is one that I made just for fun.

The Darkroom Door stamp is so versatile and so pretty...
but I was in the mood for grunging it up a little,
so I splattered some ink and added the butterflies.
(Splattering ink is another thing that I've discovered that I love to do...and dripping it)

A little bleach on the words (yep...another fun thing) to bring in the white...
and some purple on the white to balance it all.
The red I thought would be a nice contrast, and it is just some barn door DI
water coloured onto the image.

Just for fun I submitted this to the Craft Stamper
and was so surprised when they wanted to feature it 
in the "Over To You" section!


For fun I would like to enter the following challenges ~

Well deserving of being featured in CS - it's absolutely beautiful. I know exactly what you mean about always trying stuff and then wondering what's "me"... still on a huge learning curve with all this stuff of course, but sometimes just some ink and stamps is enough to make me very very happy... just as this card does!
