Love Letter Splash

Hello.

Loll has a little impromptu challenge over at her blog.

It goes with the Technique Challenge at Splitcoaststampers that our friend Karen in hosting.

Here's my card for these challenges.


We're using Loll's Splash Watercolour Technique

I put some Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink on my craft mat, 
spritzed with water and splashed it on mixed media paper.

This is such a fun technique!

Not long ago, Karen had used this Love Letter stamp for a card.

I just had to order that stamp!

It makes for a really quick and easy card!

Smoosh, Splash, Stamp and I was done!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Your background turned out beautiful, Bonnie! Love that color and the use of the stamp. I have one similar and had no idea how to use it so thanks for the inspiration!

Oh Bonnie, I really like this card. I am going to do the Splash Watercolour as soon as I can. It makes a fantastic background.

A fun technique and a stunning card--what a great combo!

I never got a love letter with butterflies attached before. I must not really be loved. I love the card though!

Bonnie, this one just caught my eye big time. Love how the splash worked on the background and the stamp is awesome!!! Of course, I love butterflies and script....would use on all cards but it would become rather mundane.

Loll said...

This design is perfect. I love the collage stamp in black with your splashes of tan and rust. I have a collage stamp that I've not used much, but now I know what to do with it! Always inspiring me, my sweet friend! xx

Susanne Vargas said...

Your splashed background goes really well with this stamp! I can see why you had to have it ;)! Isn't it great how we enable each other? Love this card!

This IS stunning Bonnie - a simple background and a simple collage stamping created a beautifully artistic and elegant card! Don't you just hate when you keep seeing stamps you just HAVE to have??!! Julia xx

Christine Alexander said...

I can see why you HAD TO HAVE this stamp. It's fabulous and makes for a fabulous cas card like you have done here. Love the 'splash' background and gorgeous color choice. Of course you have to have splatters to finish it off perfectly.
