Hot Mess - Take 28

I'm still trying to catch up on some challenges I missed last month. I'm glad my friends (and challenge partners) are so understanding of my tardiness.

Barb, Carol, Darlene, Kelly, Terry and I create cards for the Hot Mess Success challenge each month and share them on the 12th. (No, this isn't November 12th.)

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

I had BIG hopes for the technique that I used on today's card... but it failed miserably. I watch a technique video for using Simon Says Glitz Glitter Gel with an embossing folder and thought I'd give it a try. Well, let's just say that didn't work like I'd hoped it would. LOL! Perhaps I chose to intricate a design for the embossing folder. I don't know.

The premise is to emboss a piece of cardstock and then use a plastic card to add the Glitz Glitter Gel so that it just stays in the recessed areas. Sounds easy enough, right? At least I can say it was messy.

I ended up covering up most of the piece of embossed/glitzed paper with an image. I thought that was an improvement.

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