Splatter Art 09545
For my Create card, I started w/ a splat embossing folder, inked it w/ the different colors of distress inks, spritzed it w/ a little water, then placed my piece of white card stock inside & pressed. It wasn’t’s still flat. (There’s a tutorial for this showing how to do it w/ daubers, but ink pads work great, too.) I wanted just a bit more of the raspberry color, so I used the Ink Spots image to add some here & there. I placed a couple of frames on top of it & added my stacked Create die cut on top. The Mug of Art was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut along w/ the paintbrush. A few sequins were added for a little sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

  16. A beautiful card in beautiful colours. As always I like to read how you created your card so thank you for taking the time to write it out. I wondered how you created that gorgeous splattered bg.

    Both cards are wonderful.
    My husband would have enjoyed
    the second card – he was an
    avid fisherman and this is
    the kind of boat he’d been
    thanks for sharing
