Hang in There

Got messy (but had fun!) while making my card for Lizzie’s Drips & Splatters challenge

Hang in There | by karen @ carefree creations

This was fun and frustrating all at once! I loved Lizzie’s video – I learned how to do a bunch of different splatters – in the past I just winged it. Unfortunately I didn’t have any yarn (well, I know it is somewhere, but I could NOT find it!). I used some string and it didn’t want to hold the color. I was using watered down reinker and I’m thinking the color medium wasn’t thick enough like watered down paint might have been.

I wish the medium splatters in dark blue showed up better in the photo – they are done with Twinkling H2Os and they sparkle so prettily!

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this background other than an ocean theme. When I started looking through my stamps I decided the life preserver would be a great way to add a pop of contrast color…from there choosing the sentiment was easy!

Thanks for taking a peek!
