Birthday Splat

This was such a fun card to make!! If you've been on T!m Holtz's blog, you've probably seen him use a can of air to move drops of ink around glossy cardstock. That is how I created this card.
dropped Read Red, Brilliant Blue, and Garden Green on glossy card stock and squirted it with the air. Then, I cut out parts of it using my 1" square punch. I added small mats to each inchie using the appropriate color.
A simple sentiment (from Birthday Basics, Papertrey Ink) was all it needed to finish the card using my favorite Clean and Simple layout!! Wouldn't this be a great birthday card for a male teenager!
Thanks for dropping in today!! I hope you enjoy your day!!
