Something messy...

My "Get well soon" card is inspired by this weeks challenge at 
Simon says Stamp & Show : Something Messy

Whether distress stains or paint splatter, tearing up a sheet of paper or a layered collage, mist or a glitter burst - let’s get a bit messy this week! It is the first week of March, and they say this month starts like a lion right? So let’s roar and make some creative mess! 

So, my creative mess started with selection of a few different colors of acrylic paints. In my card the background was created using a simple technique. I took an A-4 sheet, folded it into half, then on one half I randomly added few drops of different solid acrylic paints. I folded the other half of paper over n gently rubbed from above with my finger.
The color drops mix up in a beautiful pattern n texture. Let it dry n then paste it on a card stock to create this beautiful card. I then drew n cut the branch n birds that forms the forefront of the card.

Hope u enjoyed my technique n the card :)
