Splashes, Drips and Dribbles

This theme took me so far out of my comfort zone, I got a nervous stomach ache thinking about it, lol. So this is what I did - I used a piece of coffee dyed paper for the background. Picked up some Distress Stain on a very stiff little brush and flicked about a million tiny splashes onto the tag. Mixed some pretty steel blue metallic pigments with water and splashed and dripped that onto the tag as well. Then I dribbled a ( very broken ) line of white glue onto the tag and covered it in bronze glitter. Liked the glitter :-), so dribbled a bit more glue, tiny dots,  and sprinkled blue glitter onto those. Drew a few black lines with a very fine pen just for a bit of contrast to all those splatters, but it still needed something else, so I splashed and dribbled some more of the steel blue pigment onto black paper and coffee stained paper, punched out little circles and randomly glued those on as well. And couldn't help myself, but had to put the little number on as well, just because.

  7. @ Carolyn, roflmao, the Pompidou Centre may purchase it at a very reasonable 150,000 Euros, what a bargain!
