ready, set, splatter (Craft Stamper, SSS)

Splatters.  I used to wonder how people made the cool ones.  My fave are still the ones some scrapbookers pull off with black spray paint spilled out of the paint can cap.  But I'm not doin' that in the house.

So, there are the sprayed kind.  The dripped from the tube of the spray bottle kind.  The dripped from a wet paint brush kind.  Or the kind that happen when you bang the wet paint brush against your other hand - but they usually end up somewhere you didn't want 'em.  The ones you make with a stamp that nearly all the stamp companies have come out with in the past six months - but that's cheating, right?  Or you just squish your Distress Inked BG into the remaining ink droplets on your craft sheet (that you misted with some water).  That's how I got these red blotches.  Callin' 'em splatters.

There is a challenge over at Craft Stamper mag for cards using splatters - a featured technique in this month's issue.  Check it out.

My stamping was done with Crafty Secrets Cherubs set so I'm hooking up at Simon Says Stamp's challenge to use clear or rubber stamps.  Some heat embossing and fussy cutting.  Some woodgrain paper.  Enamel dots (LOVE those things). Voila.

Appreciate your visit.

Supplies love:
Paper: PP Ursus, Simple Stories
Stamps: Crafty Secrets
Ink:  Distress Ink, pigment ink 
Tools: scissors
Other: clear embossing powder, enamel dots MME

Love the splatters! And the panel looks fab on the woodgrain paper. I'm avoiding enamel dots, but I don't know how long I can keep it up.

Hi Maria,
Cool card! I, too, am hesitant about splatters. It seems like I can make a big enough mess in the craft room without intentionally splatting or spraying things around! LOL I like the idea of squishing, however! Hugs!

Looks really cool on the woodgrain, Maria! And I'm so glad to hear of your issues with 'splatters'...I, too, have thought...'now HOW does this look so cute on everyone ELSE's card!?!?' For me...if I'm lucky enough that it actually hits the just rarely seems 'right'. I'm 'cheatin' from here on out!!!
