Here is a quick look at more cards made with the 'splats and splashes'. I really have fun making these. It is SO time to clean up the mess, but I just can't seem to quit. The cards are made on 4x6 Neenah white cardstock. I have tried a bunch of ideas for the 'perfect splat'! I used a craft sheet, an acrylic block, or just plain re-inker on the card. Usually I followed with dust-off or water spray or even both to move around the colors. They are embellished with regular thread, cheesecloth, molding paste, flowers, stickers, banners, washi tape, punched scraps, or my favorite, leftover papers!
 I will just include my two favorites...

Thanks for looking!

Last post I couldn't get the words to line up. Believe me that is not news! So this time I will do all the writing in the beginning and hope that nothing winds up out of place! Another, (lots of 'new') loves! More coming tomorrow. Oh, just hang in you will LOVE these digital stamps from  Power Poppy. Here is the link...  Her new post wasn't up yesterday, so now I have to go back and read it too! Let me say one more thing, the beauty of digital is that you can make they any size you want. I did two cards pretty standard, but the last card shown next is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I reduced the size of the image of the vase of flowers.
They are all colored with copic markers.

Really like the Prima dolls by Julia Nutting! I forgot what I wrote about them in my last post. ( Oh no! )
The hot air balloon is a die from memory box.

The newer dolls are named. The  red-head is 'Kate'. Her sunglasses purse and bags were done with the Silhouette. The cat is a punch!

All the words were done in Photoshop.

I used a font called Honey Script. It is on my Pinterest 'Printables' board in several places. Here is the link.
Okay, I made the images LARGE so you could read the words. Yes, I had fun and have more to finish and share!
