Lily Pad Cards Virginia's View #1

So, over at Lily Pad Cards They have a new challenge. Virginia's View. This first challenge has some inspiration from a martha stewart pic.

I just love the paint splatted look of this image, and the colours are lovely. So i took this inspiration and created this card.

I used an A la mode stamp and paper pieced the 4 leaf clover then punched some little hearts, added some definition  by drawing the creases on them and shading them with copic markers W1 and W3. Then coloured the rest of the girl with copics.
To create the Spat effect i took 2 distress ink pads- ripe persimmon and barn door, then put some of the ink on my wipe off mat. i then spritz the ink with perfect pearl mist in biscotti . once i had done this i picked up some of the ink mixture with a toothbrush and flicked it onto my card. then heat set it. It gave such a perfect colour with just that little bit of sparkle! I stamped the sentiment from paper smooches stamp set sentiment sampler
and i was finished!

Don't forget if you would like to have a go with this challenge ,head on over to Lily Pad Cards and add your link with your card!
