SplodgeAway Challenge 1 ... Distress Stains and Ryn's Circle Stamps

Yoo hoo, a brand NEW Challenge starts today on the SplodgeAway Blog. Rush over and have a look!
This is my DT sample using Distress Stains. I just bashed 'em about a bit to get the SPLATTER! 
 Then, with Archival Back Ink, I stamped over the top with one of the single Circles from Ryn's Circle Cluster Set.
It took me longer to cut out the Tag and to practise the "Splatter" technique on my SplodgeAway Mat, than it did to make a completed Tag! A few gems and 'highlights' with a White gel pen. Ding - Dong .... all done! 

The theme for the challenge is Sparkle and Gems! well, we all love them, so get going with your best Bling!
Check out Shirley's Blog... she uses Ryn's stamps as well!

Thanks for looking at this post and please have a look at my PanPastels DT card on the post below this one.
Many thanks 
Eileen xxx

    1. I used my mat to decide where to place my splats Val ..... I splattered
      All over my mat first!...... Then cleaned it off when I had the design in my mind .... Every little helps !

  7. Hi there Eileen - I've just hopped from my blog friend Sue's blog (Ollie's Mum) over to the Splodgeaway blog and I was just drawn to your 'splats'. They really are effective - and I would be like you and take much longer to perfect the splats than to do the tag! Must admit I did giggle. I must have a go at this because I love messy crafting and those colours are amazing. I sat and made a Twinchie for the next challenge and was up to my eyes in Ecogreen paint. Lurvely. I was covered - not bad considering the size of the Twinchie eh??? Anyway just wanted to stop by and admire your tag.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  9. Hey Eileen, LOVE this splatter technique!!! It looks so great with the individual circle from my set! Leave it to you to take the stamps in your own direction :) Wonderful work as always Eileen! Think this is one of my favorites so far... It's hard to pick though...

  11. I've never been tempted by the distress stains before, but seeing your tag has drawn my attention to the fabulous colours...
    I love the simplicity of the stamp and the gem middle.
    Great ideas, beautifully executed.
