Hot Mess - Take 33

It's the 12th of April, 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, 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 decided to try out the little bottles of Infusions that I have in my stash. I looked at a couple of videos to see how to prep the bottles and then I just played with them, using more water on some papers; less waters on others. This is the one I ended up liking the best...

The Infusions are very similar to Ken Olivers Color Burst and a few other companies, too. The main difference that I saw is the Infusions have a tad bit of bronze/brown in the mix. 

Here's my card:

I was not very happy with the way my card turned out, but I did love playing with the Infusions and will definitely give them a try again.

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

Wow Jeanette, I love your patience when trying out new things....if it doesn't work the 3rd time I usually throw it and put it aside for another time. Way to go!!! Your card turned out so well I couldn't believe you didn't like it.

I love playing with my Brushos, which are also pigment powders. That is one stunning background you created, and I love the large leaf die cut!
