    I love the various splatter background stamps and have seen them used on a lot of cards lately. I just purchased the hearts splatter one but absolutely love the butterfly one that Kendra used on her card. I couldn’t believe she used white embossing powder on the card; it looks so perfect as though the other inks were blended around the stamp like a stencil somehow. Beautiful cards by all of your DT.
