Splatter it !

     Well I went to see what Simon Says Stamp had in mind for their Wednesday Challenge.  That is when I found out the idea was to splatter it.  Hmmmm, what to do?  I decided that instead of flinging paint or ink, that I would go a different way, and use a stamp and some die cuts.  It is still splatter for sure!

     I started with a charcoal card base, and then created my splatter panel using and old Art Gone Wild stamp with Intense Black ink.  I sponged the edge with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  I found a splatter die cut and coated it with Glossy Accents, also coated some of the smaller dots on the background to create texture.  When my die cut was dry, I popped it up on foam tape.  I then added my words that are called Brushstroke Birthday Greetings, from MFT.  For still more texture I added some black sequins.

     A different way to attack the situation!  The weather is so refreshing this weekend, I do believe it has brought my brain back to life.  Thanks very much for stopping by!

THis is such a cool and fun take on the splatter challenge and it never even occurred to me to use some old splatter stamps I have! Well done in black and the little touch of blue is perfect!

Mary Anne,
I can not believe you have a splatter die. I really need to come shop your dies and stamps. I love this one.
