Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Celebrating the Holidays

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a card with a holiday theme.

I used acrylic paints on my card... the background is several layers of paint and stamped collage images. I watered down some white acrylic paint and loaded my brush, then tapped it against my desk to create the larger splatters of paint. The smaller dots were made with a small stylus.

Stamps I used: Snow Happy clear set (Snowman and sentiment), French Letter

Here's a closer look!

P.S. Paint Splatters are the thing for this month's challenge over at Designed to Color - you still have time to enter, if you feel like getting a little messy! I entered the drawing over at the Paper Loft too!
