OLW146- Splats and Splatters


Welcome to another week for the OLW Challenge (One Layer Wednesday).  This week the challenge is:  

Splats and Splatters- add them to your card


I love adding splats and splatters to my cards.  I started my card by masking the center area and sponging on Distress inks.  Next I stamped the ink splats (Recollections Stamps) and then splattered by pressing my Distress ink pad onto my acrylic block and picking up the colour with a water pen and flicking it onto my card.  When dry, I sponged on more ink, added the sentiment (Daisy Bucket) and scored the lines. 
I am also adding this card to the CASology Challenge: free (What does free mean to you?  To me it means having lots of free time to play with my stamps and ink.) and Free for All at Simon Says Stamp.

I really hope you get a chance to play along this week.  Here are all the details:


OLW146 Rules

1.  Create a one-layer card.  This is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half.  No other 
      layers allowed!

2.  Create a card that has splat and splatters on it in some way.  Add a link to your card.  
      Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of cardstock.

3.  Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button below.  If you link to your blog, please link to 
     the specific post, not your blogs main page.

4.  Have fun!  I am looking forward to seeing what you create.
