Splat That!

I didn't manage to enter  the Craft Mad Swaps in Jan/Feb due to the Bathroom refurbishments but did manage to send off cards in March to my swap partner which have now been received in Oz so I can show now. The theme was to send two cards with splats & drips on them. I did threaten to just take a couple of cards out into the garden and drop them in the mud/puddles and send them off but I made these instead!

1st card uses a Stamosaurus stencil called 'Splatts' and the sentiment is by Clearly Besotted from their 'Elegant Butterflies'. I just added a few sequins adhered to a blue background and called it done.cA very CAS card for me and had to sit on my hands not to add anything else.


I went to town a bit more on my 2nd card.  I used 'Water Droplets' CM - T3 by Designs by Ryn and Memory Box Honeycomb stencil 'Style  88521' Sentiment is by Clearly Besotted from their 'Elegant Butterflies' stamp set. Die cut is by Crafts-Too 'Rectangle dies stitch hole'.  I used distress ink pads to colour and the rose was from my stash along with the pink blank card base..

The splat card is a fun one! I do love that second one. I love the soft color and raindrops along with the design of honeycomb.

Love the CAS style of the splat card and your artsy second card is fabulous x

Greta said...

2 great cards, Mrs A! Gotta say, the first CAS one did surprise me & your idea of dropping them in the mud for the splatters made me laugh! PS--if you try die cutting felt it's best to have a high quality one. I used My Favorite Things which is discontinued. I've heard it needs to be wool or a wool blend & 2 other brands supposed to be good are Papertrey Ink & Taylored Expressions. I have a bit of both, but haven't used them yet.

The splat card is fun and the other lovely one has reminded me I need to use my water drops stamp which has been neglected.

Margreet said...
