A little late getting online today as the Boy Scout troop
had a FUN-raising garage sale today starting at 6 am.
way. too. early!
You may remember from this post that once a month,
my crafty group of friends invited me to join them in making Hot Messes!
We take a technique with any messy quality and turn it into a card ~
and Barb, the hostess for October, said make it a Halloween theme.
and thought it looked intriquing.
I kept putting it to the 'try this later' shelf and finally did.
And it IS fun ...
Just not for me, LOL!
The idea is you dip the block of wood wrapped with string into paint ~
I chose to use ink.
I just daubed up the string by inverting an ink pad in varied colors.
By pressing it directly to the white cardstock,
it leaves a variety of blocked colors
and you can basically create any number of patterns you want!
I've used Frightfully Sweet by My Favorite Things stamps,
last year's very popular Halloween stamp set :)
I colored the images with prisma color markers in colors to match the ink stripes,
and they are popped up on 3d foam dots.
The sentiment is a quick stamp with Picket Fence Studios black ink.
And that's October's messy card!
I wish I had more photos to show you on the process
but I could't find them on my phone.
You can see what the rest of the messy crew made today by
I'm sure they're SPOOK-tacular!
Tried a new techinique - check!
Made a mess - check!
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
