Streaking Splatters


 I got the bright idea the other day to try some of that splattering stuff that everyone seems to be able to do - except maybe me.  It looked SO easy!  I did get a few splatters - but got a bunch of streaking splatters too.  I also did some of the stacking on the die - you know, yellow/white/yellow/white, etc.  Surely I didn't expect to line them up perfectly - and didn't.  So I'm working on lining up the stacks and splattering.  By the time I master these little techniques, they won't be the "fad" anymore.  Sigh!  It was still a fun card to try and with the yellow and green it just makes me want to get spring here a little bit quicker.

Thanks for stopping by.............

Ooh, so trendy! The splatters are fab and I think your stacking is lined up perfectly. It's the coolest card and I LOVE it.

I didn't even know these were fads. I need to get out every now and then huh? I think you did a marvelous job with this one. I LOVE it. The dots and splatters look fantastic together and it looks like you lined up your die pieces perfectly to me. I like how we can see the yellow on the sides of the letters. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this card. Wishing you a happy day.

It turned out wonderful. I love the ink splatters. I really like how you did the letters. I'll have to try that.

I love your splatters Lynn! I think the mixture of spats and streaks looks totally fabulous. I also love your stacked image and it sure looks like it stacked pretty evenly. If it make you feel better it never stacks even for me either. lol Try using a wet glue that doesn't dry to fast so you have time to move it around some. And if you find the secret to getting it perfect, let me know. lol Hugs!

Once again you need to put your glasses on, this card is absolutely wonderful! I love the results you got with the mixing of white and yellow for the happy! And your splatters look just like they should! Fabulous springy card!

I can't splatter to save my life. Unless I have a white pristine card and then somehow accidentally get splatters on it, ruining it.

Fun card!

I LIKE it!! I've never tried the spattering/spattering technique yet, but I'd imagine no two are alike in any way! I love that layered sentiment - something else I have yet to try!! I need to experiment a whole lot more, because this is really a cool card!

Who cares if it's not a fad anymore? I think you should do this forever, Lynn! This is getting pinned by me and is one of my favorite cards of yours for all time! You inspire me to tackle a little spraying!! Have a great week! Hugs, Darnell

Wonderful card Lynn - it may not be what you had envisaged, but I love it!
I suspect you have a wee bit much water on your brush that caused the streaks, but it is still an effective background.

I think this looks perfect! I was considering getting that grunge set, but if you can do this without the stamps, I'll rethink it. Course what you can do I may not....

Love that stacked sentiment. Perfect as is!

MaryH said...

Oh so cute! You aren't the only one who can't splatter & spatter (and add in paste embossing too). I think yours turned out pretty good, and great with the layering. So far I've only been successful with same color with the layering bit. If I try for the 'shadow effect' it has never looked as good as what you achieved here. So keep on, girlfriend. This one is very well done, and I'll be right there, at the end of the line with you. Rest up after the sausage making. TFS & Hugs

FAB job on the cas and splattering Lynn, I love it!! If you didnt tell us you know we would all think the chip board layers was supposed to be slightly off :) Okay you have me laughing pretty hard because I feel the same as you, about the time I master it its no longer in vogue!

Shelly Schmidt said...

lauren bergold said...

Lynn McAuley said...

I remember doing splatter prints in girl scouts! Yours looks fabulous behind your fun sentiment, Lynn!

NanaConnie said...

Well, you're ahead of my learning curve with the stacking, Lynn. Until I read your post, I didn't even know that was a new trend. lol Love the spatters! I think the streaking is even better than just spattered dots. Fab card. :-D
