Make it Monday #233: Splattering

Danielle (shown here) is showing us some wonderful splattering skills this week, using a fine spray along with splatters. I have been busy doing over 30 Christmas cards, all using spatters to make either stars or snow on my cards. Here are just a few of them.
This first one uses the new Petite Places: Nativity stamps. I tried many different ways to do the background: mainly painting with watercolours, or using Distress inks sponged then either spritzed with water, or picked up with a paintbrush. For the stars, I splattered with water first, then with white paint. For some of the cards, I brightened up the splattered snow with a white gel pen, or a Perfect Pearls solution for the stars.

And here are just a few more, trying various colour schemes.  Thanks for looking!
