  1. This is fabulous! Great use of sentiment stamping, and the splatters look brilliant. I've heard a lot of people say the Clarity stencil brushes are good... must take a look :)

  2. Such a creative design Marianne. Love the sentiment box you've created. Great colours of splatters. xx

  3. Splattered beautifully and subtly with the pop of the bold sentiment - looking awesome. A great take on the challenge and thanks for sharing at Less is More this week. Sarah

  4. Fantastic card Marianne. That sentiment is fabulous and your splatters look superb in the background.
