Congratulations!

So, this week at CASology the prompt is "WORD," which as usual has a great many fabulous interpretations out there - right now the linky has over 90!  Clean and simple still poses a challenge for me, but I find it fun to play & stretch my creative wings.


Supplies: Paper Smooches sentiment; Versamark & black EP; black rhinestones; various colours of Tattered Angels glimmer mist - Turquoise Blue, Key Lime Pie, Starfish, Yellow Daisy, Chalkboard Violet

Embossing the sentiment made it pop beautifully over the misting:

I pulled out my black powder for a change because I figured my usual dusting of 'didn't mean to' stray powder would fit in with the splatter background - an then it seems to have stayed where it was supposed to for a change. Go figure! If you click to view this picture full-size you can see the glimmer of the mists really well. 

 There's a whole 5 hours left to link up, so what are you waiting for? 
xoxo,
Jessi

WHAT FUN! I love the spattering! Have you seen Princess Diaries? There is a scene where the mother is creating art by throwing darts at balloons that have been filled with paint. This is what it reminds me of! Except yours isn't nearly as messy. Great job!

Jessi, this is a WONDERFUL card design...and so versatile! I love the black embossed sentiment, and the perfect pearls add just the right amount of sparkle to your perfect splatter! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

First, here's a quick tip for clean black embossing. Use Versafine Onyx ink and emboss in clear - someone gave me that advice early in my cardmaking career - it's so much cleaner than black ep! Second - I love the fun party feel of this! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

Awesome splattering! And I salute you for a) coming up with a way to camouflage stray black ep, and b) not having any!

I love my Tattered Angels, but they don't usually come out looking like this. I'm going to try using them again as I totally love this card, Jessie!
