Embrace the negative space - Clean and simple II

So I am new to the whole misting and splattering ... I bought a few bottles but haven't used them too often.  I had an idea for a sentiment that would work perfectly for a splattered card.  I grabbed my Studio Calico Mister Huey's mists in shine and opaque white.  I used my box that I mist and do any other messy techniques in - it works well and keeps the work area clean.  I flicked a bunch of the ink onto the kraft card stock and then took it out and let it dry a bit before stamping.
I made the sentiment using Kelly Purkey's Plain Jane stamp set - I love the modern graphic look of this font.  I stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx and added three dots from PTI's Polka Dot Basics.
Hard to see the shine, but it's there - promise! :)
I added the sentiment from WPlus9's Heartfelt Mix - just perfect.  A Versamarked heart from the same stamp set and the card is all done.

So I think I embraced the white space ... even though it wasn't white after all.  And I finally did some ink splattering ... :)  This is the perfect card for a friend of mine who is going through a tough time - I think this will work well ...
