April in Amsterdam

Stamplorations challenges us to use splatters for this month's Theme & Sketch. I love a good splatter so I couldn't resist.

I was going to print a sentiment on the card front but I chickened out as so many things can go wrong with printers. In the end I have managed to print the sentiment inside, after endless setting changes. My printer doesn't like non standard sizes!

Stamps used:
Paper Artsy HP1601 ,  ESN10
Docrafts: Ticket Stubs 6x6in, chevron from All Aboard Air Mail set 4x4in

I then used Brushos on the background and splattered both the water and the powder. I use a small brush to dip in the Brusho pot and tap on top of the water. The idea of piercing a hole in the lid fills me with dread as this stuff stains like mad!

To get all the buildings on the card I had to extend the stamping over the spine and I thought it looked rather nice.

What do you think?
I suppose I should show you the whole thing flat too!

Thanks for coming by,

  3. What a fab card, love your double sided effect and the effect is stunning !

  4. Beautiful!! The Brusho/water splatter is super cool and the circles are a perfect touch at the end of the houses. I love that you continued on the back of the card! I think I need that stamp - having been in Amsterdam just a couple of days ago! :-)

  5. Love the splats and circles and the overall effect of the card, smashing creation.

  6. Absolutely beautiful use of these cool stamps, love the continuous stamping! <3

  7. C'est super beau, j'adore!!!!!!
    ça ressemble un peu dans la construction à celle que j'ai fait pour Crafty, il faut absolument que j'en refasse, l'effet est tellement bluffant.. Très belle technique ici, si je comprends bien, ton tampon ticket était vierge alors, et tu as réussi à imprimer pile au bon endroit??? Si oui chapeau! Bises

  8. What a wonderful card it is! I love it! Thank you so much for playing along with us at STAMPlorations this month! :)
