Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend!
Today's card is bringing me back to my school time when we had to use toothbrush for our art classes. It's all about spatter technique and you still have until tonight to join in this challenge over at Moxie Fab World. I am also entering this card at Penny Black and More with the theme "All My Favourite Things".
This is a fab way of recycling your old tooth brush and an economical way of creating a different look on your card. I decided to use white paint on the black background. First you dipped the white on the toothbrush and then add a little droplets of water on the brush and if you want a bigger spatters, just add more water on the brush. Hold the brush facing the paper and by using your finger, gently run over the brush to create the spatters. When I showed Claire the card and explained to her how it worked, she had to give it a try too and had fun doing it!
Once the spatters are dry, I used the stamp from HA Past Times and heat embossed in white and added a bling on the middle of the wheel! The sentiment is my all time favourite from HA Everyday Sayings and added blings on both sides too.
Last weekend, the boys had a day out together to a football match : Holland against Ireland in Amsterdam. As far as I know, the dutch are very into dressing up for their matches. Our make-up artist, Claire took the opportunity to paint their faces : one with only orange stripes and another with the dutch flags' colours on their cheeks.
Father and son in orange. Orange is the national color of Holland. Before they left for the match, we were asked to spot for them from the tv......
This is the stadium where the match took place in Arena, Amsterdam and it can cater up to about 50,000 spectators! We knew that they were somewhere out there!!
I hope that you had fun looking at the "orange" and thank you for dropping by and have a nice day!
