Autumnal Splatters

I have a couple of inky cards to show you today inspired by the autumnal colour combination over at Less is More of 'Dark Green & Rust'. I used 'Forest Moss' and a mixture of 'Spiced Marmalade' and 'Fired Brick' Distress Inks for the colours. I started by pressing my inkpads on to acrylic blocks, then watering down the ink a little, so that I could splatter it across some white card to create a background - I picked up the ink using an old paintbrush. I also did the same on a couple of Memory Box 'Darla Butterfly' die cuts...then inked over everything using 'Old Paper' (to take the edge of the white), and then around the very edges using 'Brushed Corduroy'. The sentiment stmp is from the 'Fabulous' set by Hero Arts.
