Happy Monday! And welcome to another Make-It Monday :D I didn't have anything specific on my card making to-do list this week, and I wasn't too ecstatic about my entry to the Runway Inspired Challenge #40 last week, so I decided to take another stab at it. I did warn you that I had more ideas swimming around in my head for this one ;)
Here's the inspiration for you again:
And here is my second go:
I used my alcohol inks to make the splattered background, and I used black embossing powder for this sweet sentiment stamp from Unity Stamp Company.
Unfortunately I don't think you can see the embossing in the pictures. I take all of my pictures with my iPad because I don't have a camera, but it might be about time to change that. I can't have you guys missing out on awesome details!
You might be wondering how I did the splatter while leaving a completely clean space for the sentiment. Check it out:
Simple masking by taping another piece of cardstock where I wanted my sentiment to go.
Splatter away, then remove the extra cardstock and ta-da! Perfect stamping spot.
You might notice that the splatter on my final card is different than the splatter in my masking pictures. That's because my final card was actually my second try. Since I am on vacation I don't have all my supplies with me, including my heat gun. So I got creative and tried to set the embossing powder with a lighter... Yep.. I burned my first card. Oops.
But hey, I actually like the splatter pattern on the second try better :)
Alright sweet friends, I'll see you back here tomorrow for Tip-It Tuesday!!
Big bloggy hugs <3
