Hot Mess - Take 38

It's the 12th of September, 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's mess involved Stampin' UP! Pigment Sprinkles and water - on black watercolor paper. It was fun to see the colors pop on the black, even with it slightly changing the colors from what they would have been on white.

Then, though that was quite messy, I decided I need to make a bit more mess so I spread Art Glitter Glue (it dries clear) onto the wings, trying to get a light even covering, and then added extra fine nail glitter that I recently purchased from Amazon. I actually purchased it and the Art Glitter Glue that dries white because I heard these work well for adding glistening snow to cards and with winter coming, I have visions of snowmen, snowflakes and such, so of course I needed some. BUT why wait when lightning bug wings are ready for some sparkle now.

The pictures really don't do it justice. 

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

What a cute bee, buzzing around for some attention and dropping by to say hi. Very cute colors. I mostly see black on the background with sporadic yellow? I'm not sure what it was you used. I don't think I'm familiar with it. All in all, LOVE your card. TFS!

What a cute card Jeanette. I need to look into your Amazon purchases. They sound and look like it would be right up my alley.
