Have to give you the rundown on this card's birth. Cath of Moxie Fab fame took us on a photo tour of CHA Winter 2013. Thanks, Cath. "Cool. Cool. Sweet. Nay. Cool... WHOA." - that was me scrolling down Day 1's Tour as I got to the third photo from the end. The Mia Bella collection from SEI. Go ahead and check out my link, have a gander at the drippy-inky-bokeh-ish PP in the upper right corner of Cath's photo. I'll wait...
It was love at first sight. So my brain starts toying around with ideas... how can I create that same effect? (There I go again, trying to do a job that teams of people at these companies get paid to do!) This is all I could come up with.
Some masking. Distress inking. Splotching and splattering of DI reinkers, Maya Mists and watered down white and gold acrylic paint. And a jumbo sentiment. I likey :) And boy was it a blast to make. You may recall my quest for the perfect splatter... I'm still questing.
I'm hooking up to the Moxie Fab - 75 Challenges #49 Make your own background paper cuz it's Cath's fault that I did this ;)
