WET, WET WET!!! Not the group!

Hi there everyone, welcome here,
Today I have a card for the CASology challenge which this week is..........

 this is my card



 and here is a little how I did it, pretty self explanatory but if you're new to stamping it might help :D







Stamped on my card first in Versafine black ink and then stamped again on a post it note. Cut out the wet lady :) and masked  her then with the Tim Holtz 'Spatters' layering stencil laid over her I inked gently with Distress, Salty Ocean.



Finally I coloured her with Copic pens. I debated whether to use a sentiment, in my stash I had one that said 'Make a Splash' which seems perfect but I didn't like the way it looked so left it off.
Lovely to see you :D Gay x
