Hello hello!

I'm back with another card for Moxie Fab World Card Creations Week!

This week they're focussing on the oh-so-fun-and-arty SPLATTER technique! FUN FUN!

So here is my card :)

Lots of Mr Hueys and a little Hero Arts. My Happy place!

To get this particular effect (droplets instead of a spray effect) I unscrewed the lid (cap) of the Mr Hueys, gently rattled the "syphon tube" (the little tube inside the bottle that's attached to the lid) ** inside the bottle to remove excess ink, then I pulled it out, held it over the top of the cardstock (about 6 inches away) and tapped the lid, which made the ink still in the tube, splatter out :)

**thanks Sidney for the term "Syphon Tube" lol

I then repeated with all the colours of Mr Hueys.

Next I stamped the 'Hello' sentiment in black ink, then again in versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder (this would have been MUCH easier if I had black embossing powder LOL)

That's it! I love the simplicity of it :)


Thanks so much for popping by my lil piece of blog-land!

Hope you liked the card!

love it! I like splattering better than spraying anyway. BTW, do you own Versafine black ink? That is the secret to black embossing I have found. I don't like black embossing powder, but Versafine is sticky enough that you can clear emboss it and it looks like black embossing!
