Hello Splatter Watercolor Card for Mom (#30/52) {07.28.2017}

Hi! Today's card for Mom is a water-color background with splatters ... and um (cough, cough) I got a little carried away with the splattering since I accidentally spilled the whole bottle of Distress Paint onto my card! So, I embraced it, and added a LOT of splatter! Let's check it out.

I was inspired by Kristina Werner's card on her blog. She created a watercolor background then added some (light) splatters. Thus, I tried to replicate this idea using some twinkling H20s watercolor paints, and white Distress Paint. I used BRIGHT colors (teal, green, purple) for the background, then started splattering, and ended up accidentally dumping about 3/4s of the bottle onto my background, my craft mat, and everything else on my work surface ... I decided to embrace it and flicked a LOT of white paint onto my background (all the paint that had landed on my acrylic block). After it dried, I die cut the background with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die, and adhered it to my card panel. Then, I die cut four "hello" word dies and layered them together with wet glue and adhered the sentiment to the front of the card.

I also created an insert panel for the inside of the card. I die cut another square die cut panel, and then also cut out a honu (hawaiian sea turtle) die. I also used the same die to cut another honu from a left over piece of the watercolor background, and some blue sparkle paper. I layered this all up, and viola, had a fun inside!

I hope Mom likes this card - I was inspired by Kristina's card, and I really like my background too. It was lots of fun making this card, even with the massive spill!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
