Let's Get Messy - Take 17

It's the 12th of December, time to get messy. (insert deer-in-the-headlight look) As you likely recall from previous 12ths, I am not one who likes messes. Not one bit. BUT a challenge is only a challenge if it stretches you, and I'm up for the Hot Mess Success Challenge. 

Barb, Carol, Darlene, Kelly, Terry and I create cards for the Hot Mess Success challenge each month and share them on the 12th. 

It's Anything Goes - as long as there is something messy involved. 

This month I attempted the Baby Wipe technique that I saw on SCS - HERE. It looked easy enough (looks can be deceiving) and messy enough (it was!). 

This was my first attempt:

After several more attempts I gave up and chose the best one and made a card with it. My friends assure me it's about the fun (and the mess) but not necessarily the finished project. I hope they mean that. 

Here's my finished card:

Be sure to check out the other Hot Mess gals blogs, too, to see their cards (you'll be WOW'd!)...

This is such a pretty card. I think the flower is cute and I like that you are challenging yourself every month. On to 2021!

I haven't tried this technique in a long, long time! I like the colors you got on your wonderful blossom!
