21 cards - #29

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?

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today.
