Stamp-a-Faire 2016: Mastering Drips & Splatters

This was an interesting challenge.  Lizzie Jones taught us to Master Drips and Splatters in the style of Jackson Pollock. This is my attempt and I chose to use Twinkling H2O's partly because I couldn't find the regular watercolors and partly because I thought it be fun to use shimmery paints.

I followed Lizzie's directions and played with different colors of paint and paintbrush sizes to create drips and splatters on a piece of watercolor paper.  Once it was dry, I glued it to a black card base.  I cut a Keep It Simple Frame from both white and Tropical Teal cardstock.  On the white one, I stamped a sentiment from Live Love Life in Tropical Teal and black ink.  On the other piece, I stamped an image from Background Basics: Stitching in VersaMark ink.  Then I simply adhered them to my card on an angle.  Here's a close-up photo so you can see shimmer of the watercolor paints.
