Running Colors

Just a quick card for today - I have been quite busy making card for upcoming DT assignments, since my vacation is coming up and everything has to be in place by then... but I found a little time to play in two challenges. Just Us Girls has some of my favorite color combination this week - I had to play...and then CASology got me thinking about their theme "RUN"....

So that's what I decided to do:


A little different from my usual style...running colors - I kind of like it - just very different - I guess all those STAMPloration stamps are just begging to be used in mixed media projects.....


So I took some of those sprays that I have and put drops of liquid onto watercolor paper. Used a brush to spread the color around a bit and then had it run down the paper. I also spritzed the paper with water, to make the color more runny. Stamped some other stamps on top once the card was dry. Added colored Scotch tape on top and the sentiments. 

I also think it fits the Paper Players challenge this week - Monochromatic

Materials: All stamps by STAMPlorations: Holiday ArtsyMini Mixed Media BackgroundsSubway Art Builders: Create


        
I am also linking this up with the July Linky Party for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card in the a2zscrapbooking Store.

Perhaps you like my experiment - gotta try something new every once in a while....Let me know what you think - I'd love to hear about it, even if you won't like it.
