Splashing with Crystal Effects

The Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog has a splash challenge going on right now, so I had a couple of ideas for it.  Here was one of my ideas.  I took the technique and sketch from Papercrafter's Library for this page. 
For the chipboard letters, I painted them with Tide Pool Glimmer Glam - you can kind of see the sparkles here.
Here you can see a closeup of the splashes.  To make these, I mixed Crystal Effects and Pool Party re-inker.  Next, I dribbled this onto acetate paper and let it dry.  Finally, I cut slightly around the edges and adhered it to the page.  It matches the new Pool Party colored Spice Cake patterned paper from the upcoming mini-catalogue perfectly.  And don't those buttons make great O's?!
