I do not really do a good job of keeping up on trends, but from a couple of challenge descriptions, splattering must be in!   When I saw these challenges, I immediately had an idea to combine splatters with using the new die I received as a prize from Classy Cards 'n Such - the Memory Box Excavator.  This die and many others may be purchased there. To create the splatters I used Posh Terra Cotta re-inker (watered down) and a toothbrush.  As you can see, this resulted in uneven spots as I tried to master the correct way to "click" on the brush!  I hope you can figure out what my idea involved.  The diagonal track is Washi tape, and the HI is a scrap of left over layers from the tape strip - cut with a Cuttlebug die.
In case you are wondering what this has to do with summer time - you probaby have not been out on the highways recently LOL!!
