Today I’m joining Papertrey Ink as we countdown to the May release. I have a few projects to share featuring the new Splat stamp set designed by Nichole Heady. This set is fun, trendy and full of possibilities. Here’s what I came up with.PTI~SplatFor this card, I used a technique that I shared in my latest video for the Watercolor for Card Makers. After embossing the Splat sentiment in clear, I applied ink to my acrylic block, spritzed it with water and smushed it onto the watercolor paper. I think this loose watercolor look pairs perfectly with these Splat sentiments.

PTI~SplatI used the Rock n’ Roll technique again for this sentiment using Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz. To finish it off, I added some loose silver thread and a few dots of glossy accents.
