Splash of Colour




This card has been in my mind for a long time - ever since I saw this one on Splitcoaststampers by Katchoo1. I love those splashy shapes!

Today, the time came to make this card, when I saw the colours for this week's Playdate Cafe Colour Challenge:



My colours look a little dark and the photo just doesn't capture the sun that's implied in the inspiration. I used Ballet Blue and Bermuda Bay (remember them?) with a pop of copper, so in real life it's brighter. Paisley nestabilities and some little flower petals from a different nestability. Craft's Meow sentiment. (how many of you think it's spelled incorrectly, like I do? lol!)
