CASology 116 - Splatter


This week's CASology Cue Card is Splatter!




Well, splatter and CAS don't necessarily go together, do they? But as long as there's white space, your card can feel clean even if you love to use messy, ink-on-your-fingers techniques!

I used two different inking techniques here. For the big splatter, I stamped it once in Hawaiian Shores and then re-inked the stamp in Lost Lagoon. Before I stamped it, I wiped off a lot of the ink from the centre of the stamp, so that I ended up with a lovely, two-toned splatter. (This is a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire here.)

Then, because I wanted to create a small, matching border around my main panel, I used the same inks and sponged them on to the cardbase with an ink blender tool.

My sentiment is a PTI Wet Paint die cut.

Now it's your turn! But before you go, please check out all the inspiration from the rest of the DT:

Gorgeous results! I just watched Jen's tutorial & I'm quite sure she would give you an A+ and a few gold stars for your project! Are the splatter and the sentiment both PII? If not, they sure do work well together. Great inked border!

Beautifully bold and so fantastic, Ardyth ... love the darker edges on the splatter ... they add such a sense of dimension! Anita :)
