Splatter Happy!!!

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all safe and well, lots of hugs are going to those of you who don't.
For those of you who went to Ally Pally yesterday I do hope you all had a fabulous time and spent every penny lol!!! If you're going today have a fab time too.

Todays post I actually did yesterday to enter in a competition over Less Is More,    
they are asking for one layer cards with splatters, I can do that I said to myself, easy peasy Well! Not in a million years is it easy, this was my third attempt as I did not like the other two, did not turn out as I hoped, more splodges than splatters lol! I decided this one was good enough!

I actually stamped the grasses on first then splattered over the top of them carefully not to cover the image, I added the butterflies to give it a bit of colour then added the sentiment last! 

Sorry for the quick post, it only consists of four stamps and lots of coloured paints/inks!Why don't you join in with the challenge?

Items Used:

Yellow DS Card (Own Stash)
Sheena Douglass Little Bit Scenic Stamps Silhouette Garden
Woodware Craft Collection Clear Magic Singles Grasses
Tim Holtz Distress Inks Crushed Olive & Peacock Feathers

I would like to enter this in
