Painted Flowers Color Splash

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is a color challenge: black, white plus a splash of any one color. You can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I went with the toppings option, and what a surprise, florals. I thought the sketchy look of the Painted Flowers stamp set would lend itself well to leaving the leaves colorless. The blossoms were stamped in two close shades of yellow, apparently a bit too close as they blended as the ink dried. That's ok, this was supposed to be only one color plus black and white anyway! I did a bit of ink splattering on the background which is always a messy job for me. The ink tends to go everywhere, even on unintended cards if they are too nearby. No injuries this time.

I'm also adding this to the gallery at The Flower Challenge, where it is anything goes this month. 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Painted Flowers, Label Love (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Basic Black (Stampin' Up)

This is beautiful Sandy! When I splatter it goes everywhere too! You think I would learn to put up a paper wall or something to contain the splat....but I don't. Really love your flowers! HUGS!

I think you made the perfect choice with those painted flowers, Sandy! The ink splattering adds just the perfect touch to the background. Love it!
