Tardis and Nail Polish

Experiments turned into a card.

I love my @vivalasvegastamps tardis and blueprint #distressink is the PERFECT color. I colored it in with a #prismacolor cobalt blue pencil then blended it with #gamsol. I'm very happy with this bit of the card.

 The splattered effect is from running a piece of #yupopaper through a water bath with nail polish in it. I expected a marble effect. I didn't get it, but I think the swooshy splatter works ok with a tardis. I added the @vervestamps sentiment on the Yupo and some time in the next couple of weeks that ink may dry.

The last bit of the experiment is the base. That's Recollections card stock from @michaelsstores. It's fine for matting things but as a base I can't recommend it. First of all it's not 8.5" x 11", a sliver needs to be trimmed off both the width and height. Second, the weight leaves a lot to be desired. I would send this to someone I know would hang it on the bulletin board or on the refrigerator, but someone who would normally put a curtain up on the shelf to view it

This might be my favorite card you've ever done!
