Blow Painting Splatter Cards

(This post is part of my Refresh Your Craft & Soul Blog Event – see the beginning HERE!)

Here’s another set of cards for you inspiration, this time using blow painting as the background!

I love how these look lively thanks to the watery splatters!

Simply tip a puddle of mist (you can also use watery paint or ink) onto some white cardstock:

And use a straw to blow it around, turning the cardstock as you go so it spreads out in different directions:

I did one with gold mist and one with green:

Leave it to dry and then assemble your cards! I used sentiments from the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Ephemera, because they were transparent so you still could see the refreshing effect of the splatters:

I also used a could of frame stickers because you could see through the middle of those too!

Be Inspired:

Try out some blow painting on your next project

Use transparent items or frames so you can see the background

Use some ephemera as a card sentiment

  1. Very pretty cards. I don’t usually make cards, but recently have found myself making some to use up the bits of kits that I have left. Some good ideas here.


  2. Cute results! I think I may have tried this with ink once but I generally just spatter ink instead. I’ll definitely have to give this a try,


  3. These cards are so cool! It is amazing how a little bit of ink/paint and a straw can make such a big impact on how a project looks! TFS!


  4. I want to try this on some project life cards. I wonder if I should use watercolor paper though since it looks like it would wrinkle the paper.

    Great idea!!!! I’ve been trying to find some ways to get me started on my scrapbook, since I’m currently unmotivated and in a slump. I’m so glad I found your blog, because it’s starting to give me little urges to drag that scrapbook box out. 😉


  5. This is something I used to do a lot but nowdays I can never remember to pick up straws at the store! I think it adds a nice artsy and handmade touch without a lot of work.
