Collage Card

I learned this technique just a few weeks ago and decided to try it with the February Stamp of the Month. Its called Puddle Pad and its amazing what your design looks like from the mess your pad looks like! Then, the circle is just white acrylics paint mixed with our reinkers. Just painted flat strokes making squares of color some going vertical and some horizontal. You can add some of the colors to the others to give it some interesting contrast. Then I stamped the grid on with vineyard berry and the Noted Background stamp. The paint keeps the ink from being as dark but, I think it looks great with this. I stamped another background design from the above mentioned stamp set with the Desert Sand on Colonial White then tore a piece out, distressed the edges with the Desert Sand. The tiny heart was tapped into the puddle pad "mess" then stamped with the Black and a background stamp. Added 3 tiny pink sparkles. Double click on the card for a closer look. Now, hop on down and visit the others!

Oh, I love this card!!! Do you have a tutorial for your puddle pad technique? (I'll be reading on down your blog, but just in case...)

TFS!
