The final kickstart

Today's Smeared & Smudged Kickstart Your Art challenge is to create a blotted background.  I started a bit differently than usual in that instead of rubbing my distress inks on the background, I just tapped the ink pads on the paper.  Once I had a pretty good layer, I did rub a bit of Vintage Photo on it to fill in any open spots and to get a bit of a blend.  From there, I spattered water, blotted it, and then used a bottle cap to put circular water rings on and blotted those.  The stamped sentiment is from Close To Your Heart.

Again, many thanks to those of you who have stopped by and left comments.  I wasn't able to respond to most of you since your email addy's aren't associated with your IDs and unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to get around to all of your blogs.  Again, thank you!!  Wonderful work all!
