Inky Puss

I have been playing around with Ken Oliver 'Color Burst' powder paints recently, just seeing how the different colours react with each other.  With this card I lay a stencil over white card stock, sprinkled some powder and then spritzed it.  As I lifted the stencil, some of the paint took on the shape while the colour seeped under other parts, however this was what I was left with once it had dried.

At 'Simply Less is More' this week, the challenge is
One Layer Card - Splatters

I wanted a solid image stamp for this card, so went with this delightful pussy from Katzelkraft.  The words are from a magazine freebie that I came across in my stash recently when I was looking for something else.

As this is one layer, I felt it needed something extra, so I scored a border around the edges.

Happy Crafting!


  1. This looks fantastic. I love the way some splatters are defined and others are not. It gives an incredibly artistic, 'loose' feel which really works. Great LIM card!

  2. Smashing card, love the cat image and the border? Makes it special


  3. Great splatters, love that cat, he has that aloof look of most cats! Cara x
