Compendium Challenge - Splatters? Blobs? Who Knows?

This week's Compendium challenge from Linda is from page 52 - alcohol ink splatter.  My first effort - two efforts, really - were definately more blobs than splatters. Muddy ones, too - I was definately overthinking the ink!  This is version 3!

I used juniper, lemonade and pink sherbet inks. I had a lot of problems with the technique - both from the can and a straw!  


The background paper is from Crafty Individuals ane the stamps are by Wendy Vecchi.
