In many of the ventures I’ve taken into the depths of Instagram eye candy-land, adding some splatter to finished artwork is totally a thing. Here’s another thing though – splattering those babies is messy. Those little splatter dots actually go everywhere – I still have some on my keyboard from when I made this freebie 😁. If you’re taking your artwork digital, or editing things a little further, there’s a way to avoid those little keyboard/desk/everywhere ink freckles: pre-made splatters! This week’s freebie is a set of 3 varied mini ink splatter textures you can use at will. Grab them below, plus check out a few ideas + inspiration for using em!
Freebie: Mini Ink Splatter Textures
This download includes 3 different psd files + transparent pngs to give you some splatter variety. Each psd comes as an 8.5″x11″ (or A4) sized document with the background totally removed. All files are high resolution (300ppi), and greyscale color mode – change as needed. In case you’d like to use these in other programs asap, I’ve also included transparent png files – yay! In Photoshop, change up the color by first changing your color mode (image > mode), then apply a color overlay layer style to the splatters (to do that, double click on the layer and navigate to ‘color overlay’ in the layer styles palette). These splatters are opaque black, so no need to worry about transparency blending.

Inspiration + Ideas for Use!
#1: Add around hand lettered names for a simple + subtle artsy feel.
#2: Creative business cards – mix with an existing texture (shown here: texture no.06 from Watercolor Texture Kit vol.3, vector flower graphic from 100+ vector leaves + flourishes, script font is Tuesday Script, sans serif is Novecento)
#3: Hand lettered quotes – combine two, or all three textures for extra splatter, as needed. Easy peasy 😉
