Well I just knew I was going to have great fun with the Spatter Technique Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!
I remember when we were kids, my sister, my brother and I used to love making splatter pictures. Truth be told, most of the paint probably ended up the table, floor and even ourselves rather than our “artwork”! So doing some splattering yesterday evening brought me right back to when we used to do splattering with paint and stamping with cut out potatoes (didn’t realise I’d get so hooked on stamping at a later stage!). Another favourite was splashing melted candle wax on paper, painting over it and then peeling the wax off. We even dropped splashes of wax on our hands so we’d have monster hands – how we didn’t burn the house down I’ll never know!

Anyway after some splattering I ended up with two cards. For the first one I wanted to make a butterfly trail splattered with paint and sprinkled with gems and pearls. So I masked part of the panel and got splattering. The butterfly is embossed on vellum and I just added some gems to it too.

For the second card I attempted to make a wall with graffiti, but I soon realised I’d never make a graffiti artist, so my wall turned into part of a skateboard park! I coloured the image with ProMarkers and stamped the clouds with broken china distress ink. Since I had to give up on the graffiti idea I used QuigleyWiggly font from Word for the sentiment.
I’m also submitting the butterfly card into the current Hero Arts challenge. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend:)
