Hot Mess Success ~ Nuvo Glacier Pup!


Hello friends!

Today's card is one of the 4 new messes I made this weekend :)
As part of the Hot Mess Success card group, 
we make messy cards!

The idea behind the card group is that we make cards with different 
messy backgrounds!
I'm not a messy person by nature but with art ~ I don't mind.
My motto:  The messier, the better!

For me, I'm not a big card CASE-r and I don't watch videos to create ...
 I literally toss things together and see what sticks!
I love the organics of art ~ combining, playing, experimenting 
and just letting it do it's thing naturally and see what happens.
Like this month!

My card started out with a simple watercolor background - easy peasy, right?
And, once it dried, I thought it needed something extra :)
I was never one to leave things alone, LOL!

I had a tub of Nuvo glacier paste and it was calling. my. name!
I bought a couple of stencils from Scrapbook.com, including this Altenew            half-tone stencil, and used it as a base.
The paste is easy to spread with a spatula and gives such great texture!
It did have to dry overnight since it's pretty goopy and this does not set with a heat gun. 

It's so sparkly and pretty!  I love the subtle hint of glitter from the Nuvo paste and could see this on a lot of cards!

Here are the ladies playing along:

Kelly (you're here!)

We'll be posting our Anything Goes cards every 1
2th of the month  which means messy!  Woohoo!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ....
