Today I'm making a mess!
As in a Hot Mess :)
My friends Barb, Jeanette and Terry had a crazy idea.
They said 'Let's create a card group! And make messes!
And call it a Hot Mess ~ Success!
oh yes ... what time?!! :)
For this first card, I went with something messy yet familiar :)
And that was it for the background ~
easy peasy and yes, messy!
The idea is to create a card using any of the 'messier' techniques to cardmaking ... water colors, paints, inks, shaving cream, etc.
Once a month, we'll create a card that requires us to make a mess
- and be successful!
Back to my card base ......... I let the alcohol inks basically do their magic!
I made several background pieces and
after the colors blended together, I noticed that one piece
looked like an underwater scene with a cave.
Not really sure where I got that from ~
we did recently watch The Goonies! :)
So underwater cave it is!
I went through my huge container of colored images from The Daily Marker
and remembered the Lawn Fawn sublime stamps and die cuts.
They were already colored and ready to go ~
all I did was move them around on the paper until I was happy with their placement and pop them up on foam for dimension.
I've lived in Florida for most of my adult life and this scene,
although just ink and paper, stands out from a trip to Peacock Springs
where adventure trails, camping and cave diving are the highlights!
and if you want to see their cards, each name is their blog.
We plan to make cards once a month, every 2nd Monday,
and I'm sure it will be quite a
Before you go, if you made it this far - thank you!
I have some pretty important tests today with a specialist.
I pray I'm able to find answers to my painful journey of the past few months.
I haven't been able to walk right and hobble around on a cane most days :(
If you could think some good thoughts or say a prayer, I'd be so grateful ♥
Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
