Hello my friends. I think I've posted more times this month than any since I started my blog. I don't expect that to continue, since I tend to create in spurts.
Here is another card for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art. This post shows how I made the base for my cards.
My inspiration jar words were text, splatter, and hot.
I started by painting my background and then flicking different colors of paint on for a splatter effect.
I really wasn't sure what to use for the word hot, when I finally realized that a hot drink would work, so I pulled out my tea cup die from spellbinders. I was digging through some scraps when I came across this brightly colored piece of glossy card stock. It was one I made when I was playing with alcohol inks and compressed air. I thought it would look pretty as a tea cup. After die cutting, I stamped a flower stamp from toile blossoms (SU). I just now realized that the technique used on this piece is called alcohol ink splatter, so I actually utilized that word twice.
It was hard to get a photo that didn't have a glare from the glossy paper. This 2nd photo is a little blurry, but doesn't have as much glare.
I used a sizzix die, doily lace medallion, for the doily, with some black card stock behind it to make it stand out.
The computer generated quote is my text. I love being able to search for quotes and verses on line. I can't imagine not having that capability. Whatever did we do before computers?
