Thoughtful Thursday

Hello. Today is Thoughtful Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today we make creations using a thoughtful greeting. For my card today I got inky. VERY INKY. :) I made my own spray mists with distress ink reinkers and water in mini mister bottles. A dropper full in each bottle, and some water. I cut out some masks from Post-It paper with the Stitched Daisy Die from MyCreativeTime. I free hand cut the stems. I stuck them to my cardstock and started spraying. :)
As you can see, because the colors mixed, I got more colors than just the 3 I used. Score! :) To get the white splatters I squirted some white paint on my craft sheet and added lots of water. Then I dipped my paint brush in and tapped it over the cardstock to get the splatters. And here's what became of this inky piece...
I peeled up the masks and used a black marker to outline the flowers. Because the masks got really wet, you can see the stitching lines on the flowers. This looks extra cool in real life. :) 
The greeting is from the Vintage Sentiments set from MyCreativeTime. To finish it off, I added some Crystal Clear sequins from Neat And Tangled

I really super love how this turned out! :) Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more creations!
