Watercolour Dragonfly Splatter

Hey Everyone! I am back with another card to share with all of you!  I mentioned in my last post that I was going to be sharing a lot of the Thank You cards that I have been putting together for some orders that I'm working my way through. 

The idea for this card came from a card that I had seen on pinterest.  I loved the splatter look on that card, and knew I could create something similar for the card that I was going to be creating.  

I really love how this card turned out.  I love the simplicity of the stamping and the wording, and the tone on tone with the splatter look from the 3 colours of ink I used.  This is a technique that I haven't used that much in the past, but its certainly one that I intend on using again in the future!

Here's the front view of the card...
