I used similar DOX colors for Stef's challenge. Just smeared them onto acetate and used a Koi waterbrush to paint the flowers. Totally out of my comfort zone. The butterflies are covering up an ink splotch. I sprayed the oxide spray in a plastic dish and first used a toothbrush, but it was too fine a look, I thought, so I dipped a paintbrush and got bigger splatters. Again out of my comfort zone. I love the look of splatters on other's cards though. I smooshed some leftover ink onto another piece of w/c and then embossed the sentiment in gold and punched it out with the classic label punch. ( doubled it and glued them together and popped up with thin dimensionals. tfl.

Your card is Beautiful, Shirl, and your splatters look like flower seeds spreading around so that more flowers can grow. The butterflies look great right where they are no matter what the reason is. : ) Really pretty card~

Wow Shirl, this is sooo gorgeous my friend. I am surprised to read that doing splatters is out of your comfort zone because this looks like a pro did it. I especially like how you used the same color for your fun splatters as you did for these beautiful flowers. The butterflies are so delicate and look like they are meant to be there so that worked out quite nicely. I like how you added color to the sentiment panel too- fun! ~Karen.
