Make It Monday 161--Watercolor Splats


When I saw how Nichole Heady created her watercolor splats, I couldn't wait to get inky
with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge. It was my first time ink distressing with
their premium dye inks and I love how the water drops have a bokeh effect.
 

I applied three of their inks: Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, and Harvest Gold
using the new mini ink blending tools. (Love them!)

I followed Nichole's tutorial and added drops of water in varying sizes,
white embossed the Wet Paint sentiment, then added a few butterflies that were
punched out from a second inked piece.


I'm also entering this in Moxie Fab World's Hip on Handwriting Challenge
because the paint brush sentiment is trendy and fun. And I wish that I wrote it.

Thanks for visiting today!

  19. Fabulous! I love how the butterflies are in their colour band rather than contrasting (which is probably what most of us would have done!).
