Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #211, where our lovely Nonni has selected Paint Splatters as her Designer's Choice.
I'm 'very' good at making splats and smudges when they're *not* wanted, but doing so *intentionally* is a whole 'nother story! Often, my splatters wind up more as blobs or mists, barely visible. Lacking 'splatter savvy', I opted for simplicity with this technique. Indeed, I even resisted the urge to use one of my paint splatter stamps...true exercise of restraint!
Recently, I invited the Mermaid stencil and mask from Funky Fossil Designs (her range of stencils is especially awe-mazing!) and used the masks for my cards. The backgrounds are a combination of Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon (of course!), with splatters using my much-neglected (as in 'never used' to paint anything) Gansai watercolours. They're a combination of two shades of blue, a purple and white, which are hard to capture in a photo. Sentiments are from Pinkfresh Studio's Lush Greenery; the rays, in the second, from an MFT stencil.
I'm looking forward to showcasing the mermaids in different ways down the road!
Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery!
Thank you for dropping by!
