And more splatter...

So, as I mentioned in my previous post, I said I would try my hand at splattering with acrylic paint and a brush. Since I had Friday off from work and was at home with my daughter, we tried out this technique together. We had a blast!!! I showed her how to hold the brush and tap it and she did a fabulous job! We used the same red paint for our splatter and I thought it was a perfect opportunity for her to make a Father's Day card. Since her favorite colors are pink and purple, what else can you expect, right? She cranked the Cuttlebug and I stitched down her hearts. She placed her star, which she die cut also and stamped her sentiment.

Here is Leah's card



I created my splatter card to play along again with Moxie Fab's  splatter challenge. The color scheme also plays along with this week's fabulous Play Date Cafe Challenge. It's been a while since I have particiapted in this challenge, too. I know that my Rose is a little more red, but I really like how it turned out.




My latest PTI goodies arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I loved greeting the UPS carrier at my doorstep in the rain. My eagerness to receive my package brightened his day. Love that! I was finally able to order the heart border die. ***swoon*** I just love adding the stitching detail to it. I was also able to order Soft Stone ink. Can I just say I am in love?! It is so subtle and pretty and happens to be a part of this challenge. I also dusted off my Creative Memories hexagon punch. They seem to be all the rage now. It's too bad I only have 2 sizes.

I had so much fun creating this card alongside my daughter. She is 4 1/2 years old, as she often tells people. I can't believe she will be turning 5 at the end of August. sigh. Thanks for looking!
