Splatters and Drips at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge starting at Vintage Stamping Challenges and our theme for February is 'Splatters and Drips'. We're a stamping challenge so make sure you ink up those rubber/clear stamps to play along (no digis allowed) and our lucky winner will receive a generous $20 voucher to spend at Flonzcraft!

I struggled a bit with this theme for some reason although I do love messy crafting. This was my last attempt lol. I began by stamping the focal images from the Flonzcraft stamp set 'Sweet Bird of Love' with versamark and embossing with Gold EP on cream card that I'd die cut. I then sprayed lots of glimmer mist over the embossing and let it drip down the cardstock.. Next I added some splatters of brown Tattered Angels glitter paint and left it to dry.

I used the same brown paint to give the birds a little definition and then added some stencilling with an Indigo Blu stencil and some gathered twigs distress ink. 
To finish off I've added a seambinding bow topped with a brass flower and a pretty bead and a brass bird charm.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Friends: animals/birds
Cut it up: love is in the air
My time to craft: love is all around
Sweet Stampin: Valentine
Wags'n'Whiskers: with love

Thanks so much for popping by today

    Last attempt or not I bet the others were equally as good as this one. The drips and splatters look super cool
