Day one of the long weekend here found me with some extra time stamping-wise.  Usually my weekends are pretty busy with cleaning, running errands and trying to get design team cards made for the coming week.  But the prospect of an extra day off from work gave me some time to do a little leisurely stamping for no particular reason.

Not surprisingly I made another card to play along with the splatter challenge at CASology and combined it with the one layer challenge at Less is More.

I played no part in adding the splatters on this card - they came with the floral stamp.  I briefly toyed with the idea to add a few more but figured there was a good chance that I'd ruin it so I left it alone.  The flowers are stamped with Distress Ink and after I inked up the stamp I sprayed it with water to smoosh the colors around.  This isn't watercolor paper so the effect is subtle but in real life I can see some depth of color amid the flower petals.

Today I've not nothing planned but some grocery shopping, football watching and card making!  Fall is definitely in the air here and I actually turned on the heat yesterday because it was getting a bit chilly in the house.  Apparently the cats thought I should have done it sooner because as soon as the radiators got warm they were draped all over them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Poppy Field (Rubbernecker Stamps); Mini Stamp Brilliant (Heidi Swapp)

Such a pretty CAS card, Jen. I love the colour you chose. It's getting chilly here in the UK too but so far I've not reached for the button the boiler, I think that may change in the next day or cats will be grateful too I'm sure!
