Here's an entry (rather last minute) for Color Throwdown, CAS(e) This Sketch #143, Time Out Challenge (autumn) and since there is coloring also Virginia's View for this month.
I watercolored a large piece of Canson paper with Kuretake Gamsai paints and spattered with the gold. Then die cut the MFT Die-namics leaves. Sponged walnut stain distress on the top and also on the leaves to tone them down bit. Added some gold thread and the Clearly Besotted sentiment and done.
A little aside - nothing to do with my card - was wondering what the difference was between "spatter" and "splatter" - spatter is what we do on our cards (little drops of water on distress ink, a light spray of color from the tip of a wet brush) - and splatter is done with a sticky or more viscous substance, like mud, when a car going by splashes you. But I suppose if you used a heavy liquid, like acrylic or oil paint, you could splatter on your card.
Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments. Betty
