I've got two cards today inspired by the challenge on Vintage Stamping this month which is splatters and drips - certainly a different theme than I think I have ever seen before!
As soon as I saw the challenge I immediately thought of my Ryn raindrop stamp which I love using - so any excuse to give it an inking. I first made a background using CE Colour cloud inks and then stamped a dragonfly from Crafters companion and sentiment. I coloured with Cosmic Shimmer drawing inks and aqua twinkles then stamped randonmly with the raindrops in Versamark lagoon ink. I added a wink of stella to the raindrops and then for good measure some aqua twinkles - such a shame I can't seem to capture it on camera. But here is a close up
I then cut out the main image with a circle die and remounted over some background card. Stamping some more raindrops across the base card.
I have had this snippet of ribbed card in my box for ages and thought it was the perfect colour to complement the making of another card - this time I used some jewelled embossing powder and mica on the dragonfly, again this really shimmers and has a glassy effect in real life. I stamped the base card with a stamp from the SU set Hope (now retired).
snippets playground with these cards as all the layers of card were from the snippets box. My second visit this week - anyone would think I was trying to make prefect LOL!
