Just Wanted To Say...


Here's a card I made for my stamp club card exchange, our theme was food.  I used the Large Pear Stencil from Stampendous and sponged yellow, orange and green Distress inks on a Mixed Media White Paper panel.  Water was splattered on the pear and let dry to make water marks.
     The card was then splattered with orange ink by rubbing some ink on my craft mat.  A wet brush was rubbed into the ink then tapped while over the card to make splatters.  I made 8 of these cards and quickly learned to try to make small splatters since the large splatters looked like a crime scene with blood splatters!
     Once everything was dry, the sentiment from Happy Greetings Perfectly Clear Set from Stampendous,  was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink (my favorite black ink).  Washi tape was added to the edge (no idea where it's from) and it was glued on an orange card with Zip Dry Glue.
