PTI MIM ~ Ink Splattering

Hello PTI fans. I'm popping in with the card I made for the PTI Make-it Monday challenge with Danielle Flanders where she focuses on creating ink splatters.
Here's my card:

I started by splattering Hawaiian Shores ink mixed with water onto a white linen card base. I don't have a re-inker in this color so I smooshed the ink pad onto a piece of acetate and sprayed it with water then flicked the color on using a water brush. It looked darker on the card base until I added all the other elements, now it looks like you can hardly see it. I also added a couple of coffee mug stains using dark chocolate ink mixed with water, and dipped my bottle of Glossy Accents into it and stamped it a couple of times on the card base. I cut an Embroidered Dots frame and stamped it using the peppermint candy stamp from Candy Cane Christmas and then added the mug cut from the same set. I heat embossed a snowflake onto the mug and added some Peacock Feather distress ink to the edges of the mug and popped in some candy canes and a few leaf sprigs.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
