This card was made for the ColorMyHeart Color Dare #159 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #125 which also met the requirement for the Heart2Heart "Splat" Challenge.  Since I was going to work with a "splat" why not take the Koala Bear Stamp-Set and change his tree branch into a paint brush and use the Ink Blot Flair stamp-set for paint splats.  A paint palette cut from Cricut Design Space was used for the background adding several circles of color with liquid glass on each to appear as wet and give it dimension.  Paint cans were also a Cricut Cut.  Finally added beads to Koala's eyes and still trying to think of a sentiment I want on this card.

As I mentioned on your Facebook post, I thought your koala was holding a paintball gun at first glance! So cute - perfectly made for the challenge theme.
