Totally Terrific Thursday

Good Morning!
I thought I'd get my bloggin' done early today so I can 
get started on 
"My Favorite Things" Canvas Mini Album from 
 If you love unique project kits, be sure to visit Sarah and The Paper Bakery!


I created this card for my Totally Terrific Thursday project at 
I Heart Ippity, as well as Danni's weekly CARDS Sketch Challenge at The Nook :)

The stamp set is
 Bloom & Simplify 
and is one of the April Releases
I LOVE this stamp set for it's very grungy, scruffy the sentiment 
of the background stamp is truly beautiful and well-stated.
I bring this up only because I've struggled with creating the perfect 'splatter' paint
effect.  The effect that I've always wanted to achieve are big blobs along with 
tiny flecks :)  Add a little water to your acrylic paint and mix.  Test on a scratch
piece of paper before applying to your actual don't want your
mixture too thin.  I use an old toothbrush, but you could also use a stiff 
paint brush or pipette. It also helps to stand back a little more when you're 
wanting to create the smaller splatters.

My Dot & Whimsy shop at Etsy is a sponsor at 
this month!
The Design Team there has whipped up some really amazing stuff!
I sent different color schemes of the
On The Fringe Crepe Paper Trim
and you must, must go and take a look at how they've 
incorporated the fringe onto their scrapbook pages, home decor, baskets and more!
You'll be inspired ♥
