Feline Friend Birthday card

Kortet mitt idag var kjempegøy å lage bakgrunn til.. SPLÆTT! Masse risting med malepenselen og noen spruter med distress ink sprayene mine ~ men det beste er vel selve splættene, de ser så stilig ut og er veldig enkelt å lage: Ta en Tim Holtz distress stains (med sånn svamp-påførings-topp) og dunk den hardt mot papiret så blekket spruter (lurt å legge arket/kortet oppi ei pappeske eller noe først), og det blir en utrolig kul effekt! ..Jeg 'gjenoppdaget' teknikken her forleden da jeg mistet flasken på bordet.. ble en masse søl, men fikk jo et a-ha øyeblikk ;) 

Vi har to flotte sponsorer i utfordring #107. hos Creative Fingers ~ Lemon Shortbread, & Bridget's Stamps som mitt nydelige motiv er fra. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

I had such fun creating this cards background! SPLAT! A whole lotta shaking, flicking and spraying ~ but the coolest effect was the splats! Don't they look cool? I 're-discovered' the technique when I dropped my distress stains bottle on my crafttable and made a right mess.. but it did give me an idea for my next project! So to do the same just remember to protect your work surface, like by putting the card base / paper in a cardboard box or something first, then forcibly put the dabber bottle against the paper, and the artistic cool-looking splats appears! I LOVE my Tim Holtz inks ♥
