Seize the birthday : Splatter !

Hi there!

I am so excited to tell you about our new feature at Seize the birthday from this week on!

Every month we will ask a faithful participant to join the design team as our

  SURPRISE PARTY GUEST!

To kick off this new feature I am so pleased to introduce you to Anita in France ! Anita is no stranger in blogland and is a very talented and such a sweet and supportive fellow card maker!
Welcome Anita!


                                                      



The topping for the next 2 week is to show us some kind of splatter on your card. As always, you are more than welcome to link any newly created birthday themed card, no need to splatter!
                                     
This is my inspiration... 2 cards this time! I guess I got carried away !

Do you have a favorite?



or...


My focal point is a Silhouette cut butterfly , framed by a flower mandala from an online coloring book. With the current adult coloring craze going on, mandalas is such a fun thing to color. There are SO MANY wonderful mandalas available on line, and they make fabulous 'digital stamps' for cards... and they are FREE!!! I selectively colored the mandala with my Promarkers.

I added my own computer generated sentiment and a bit of bling!

Inspiration for my card was provided by a couple of other challenge:

Less is more  ~ Jewel colors

Cas-ual fridays ~ Tic-tac-toe ( I picked coloring -  spritzing - die cutting )

Virginia's view challenge  ~ All things colored.

A very simple sentiment... but I saved it for you as many of you told me you love the white on black sentiments!





Hope to see you play at Seize the birthday!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hello Hannelie, I'm always nervous about splattering, I've ruined a couple of cards with it, sheeesh!! You did a fabulously beautiful job with this two cards, I can't pick a favorite, the splatter on them is perfect. Did you do it with a spray bottle or an old toothbrush? flicking your fingers?? I sometimes do it with a paint brush but the splatter looks to big, (sigh!)
Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards.
Hugs,
Maria.
