Water Color Wednesday - Splodge background

Hi Everybody,

Nothing could be more simple than this card which is just water splodges with paint added in and allowed to run

I used craft foam at the back which helped to flatten the card out again and then backed it onto some deep red card.

The stars are cut from the same card and added to the front with foam pads beneath.

I used two of the Pierced Stars  together to create the frame

The sentiment is from the   Many Words    stamp set from Spellbinders  and I finished it off with  the shiny chrome dots from Want2Scrap

Simple, easy and would suit the birthday of a young man ... just leave out the pink !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
