Splish, Splash, Splat!

The new ""Tanda Teaser" is all about throwing your paint/inks about and generally making a mess!!

And most of all having fun!

I needed to make an anniversary card for an old college friend and I wanted something a bit edgy...not mushy.  I stamped in black archival and then did a splat, splat with fired brick distress stains.  Once dry I went over the stamped image with glossy accents giving a wrought iron sort of effect.

I used the same distress stain to dye my seam binding to finish the card off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
"Paper Shelter- Anything goes"
"Craft your passion - anything goes"
"The ribbon girls - use ribbon or lace"
"Speedy and friends - Black and white and a splash of colour"
