MIM #233


Danielle shares her tips for the splattering technique on this week's MIM Challenge.  Watch HERE to see how easy she makes it look with her beautiful gift tags. 

I have a tendency to 'over-do' sometimes (okay, it's more like all the time) so I really concentrated on splattering enough ink to look like snowfall and not a blizzard on this card.

My Card ~ This one's for you, Marcia H  ;-)

* PTI Song Birds dies are cut from textured aqua cs from Bazzill and mounted on blue glitter foam, then hot clued onto red glitzy  ribbon from the Dollar Tree. The leaves are cut from red foil and some are lifted up for (more) dimension.
* Tim Holtz "Christmas Background" is embossed onto PTI Stamper's Select White cardstock.
* The splattered shimmery ink is Summer Sky from Imagine Crafts
