Splattered ink!!

 I decided to get inky and  have a go at the Moxie Fab "Splatter Challenge".  I wanted my card to give the impression of a meadow of wild flowers, so I splattered my card quite a bit with various colours and then over stamped with The Hero Arts Blooming Meadow stamp.  I then just added my paper pieced and punched butterflies.





























Such a pretty effect, I then just added a few pearls and distressed the bottom of the card with some Bundled Sage ink. I am also adding this to the current challenge at "A Blog Named Hero" called Dust off your old stamps.


This will be my last post for a few days, tomorrow is my 30th Wedding Anniversary and we are going away for the weekend, I am really looking forward to it although it looks like its going to rain a lot :0(  We had planned lots of walks in the countryside and along the coast,  looks like we will be getting wet!!

I though I would add a photograph of our wedding all those years ago, unfortunately both my parents had passed away so we opted for a Registry Office ceremony and then a Honey moon in Monaco to watch the Monaco Grand Prix (hubby is a huge Ferrari fan and has been since he was a little boy) those years have flown by.



Hope you all have a great weekend too.

Your spatter card is gorgeous, love the images. Congrats on 30 years of marriage, we celebrated our 25th yesterday. I was an 'old' bride at 32. At least I thought I was back then :) Have fun, Shirley

Happy Anniversary Sally. You looked so beautiful! I wish we had gone with a simple ceremony, we spent so much on a big wedding and I spent the whole reception crying because my caterer was an a$$. Enjoy your weekend away. 30 yrs is HUGE! :)
