May CAS Mix Up Challenge - Splatter

Happy May Day everyone!  Today is also the May CAS Mix Up Challenge!  Loll is our host this month and she wants us to Stamp, Splatter and use another mixed media of your choice (suggested list on the challenge blog!)
I stamped my sentiment, sponged inks, splattered over Distress Inks with water, used a Digi Image, masked using a circle, and added 3 rhinestones!
First, I die cut a circle and laid the negative cut (the frame) over my card.  I sponged inside the circle with Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Cintron Distress Inks.  Then I splattered with water and dried with my heat tool.  The water reacts wonderfully with the water based inks.
I had a digital image of this cute little girl in my stash (sorry I don't know where she is from - but I think she was free).  I colored her with Zig Clean Color Brush pens and fussy cut around her.  I added a little blush to her cheek using powder and a q-tip!  I layered her over the inked circle with foam dots. 
I stamped the sentiment from Dress Form Set by PTI in black ink in the upper corner as if the girl is looking at the message.
To finish my design, I added 3 blue rhinestones.
You have until May 24th to join in!  Can't wait to see how you 'splatter'!!   You will find the challenge details and all of the inspiring splatter projects from the talented Design Team at the CAS Mix Up Challenge Blog!

I always forget that water can count as splattering - I love the subtle look it gave you on the background. And I love the sweet little girl and the way you carried through the blue colour on her clothes and with the gemstones.

The masked circle is a great idea Julia and the two colours are perfect together and love the spattering with water to remove the colour. I love the way the cute little girl is looking at the sentiment, a fabulous idea. x
