splattery backgound

Splatters are a great way to add a little interest to a card, without detracting from the main focal point.

The image panel is a acetate with smooshed AI background,  Tissue paper was crumpled and stuck to the background using gel medium once dry I stamped the leaf image from Magenta stamps.
The white areas are where the AI's missed and you can see the white tissue paper, I think it adds so much more dimension to the image.  I just wanted the splatters around the lower and the open edge of the card so I masked out the rest.
I stamped the Thank You using a Delicata gold ink pad and my splatters are gold spray ink.
