Joyful Splatter

Hi there.

Have you splattered yet?

I had fun making this card!

I die cut from a snippet of watercolor paper, cutting the flower part twice.

Then I sponged some DOX paint on the pieces and spritzed with water.
The water moved the paint some and made some interesting color.

I think I spent more time trying different sizes of circles for the center
of the flowerthan I did on anything else.
It's from a snippet of yellow, splattered
with some watered Distress Ink.

I added some yellow splatters too to the panel too.

I'll take this to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge
I think hugs mean love and I really love flowers.
That's one reason I love Penny Black stamps and dies!

CAS Mix Up
I've stamped, splattered and spritzed and die cut.

Since I used water to get the DOX ink to move,
I'll put this is in the 

Both challenges close at midnight PDT on the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Bonnie, your six-part series of stem flowers has been just brilliant! You could seriously sell any of these framed as sets in a boutique for lotta money! I would buy them! I loved the photos you posted from your balcony on vacation and I'm glad you had a great time! We are down in Santa Barbara on the beach, too, which is where we went after Katherine's graduation. It's especially soothing after being in that LA traffic for a few days!!! Hugs, Darnell

Hello Bonnie,
I love this PB flower, but you did much more with him. You added extra layers, which made it look even more amazing. I like the embossed edges, they look like delicate lace. And wonderful splashing ... The whole is stunning.
Hugs, my Friend,
BożenA xoxo
