Paint Splatter + 25% off

I love the look of messy paint or mist splattered backgrounds… a technique you see lots of cardmakers doing these days. However, I have ruined one to many cards trying to get good results! So when I saw the new My Favorite Things Abstract Art stamp set, I was tickled. It has lots of paint splatter and brush images. So delightful…

This card was super simple to pull together. I just inked and stamped a few of the paint platter images from the Abstract Art set with Mint Julep, Green Hills and Fresh Peach Ink. They look like the perfect paint splatters… but nicely controlled. πŸ™‚ I even added some Wink of Stella glitter marker for a touch of shine.

And that butterfly? Wow. I LOVE butterfly stamps, but it has been awhile since I have seen one I just must have. This one? So fresh and fun. And having matching dies makes it even better.

Oh – here is the Abstract Art stamp set so you can see all the images it has in it…

For the background, I used the new Art Expression Text stamp set. The quotes about art are prefect for any card.
