Hot Mess - Take 45

I know it isn't the 12th of the month, which is the date of the monthly Hot Mess Success challenge. BUT - I have a SCS Sketch card to post on my blog tomorrow, so I'm posting the Hot Mess card a dat early. I hope the other Messy Gals don't care that I'm doing that. 

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, 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 card included a lot of trial and error and truthfully I'm not too happy with the outcome. I did get messy so I met that requirement.

I read somewhere (I don't remember where) that you could adhere foil to paper using a glue stick and pressing the foil onto it. It sort of worked for me, but the oomph I was hoping for kind of fell flat. Not very impressive, to say the least.

The flowers are a fun stamp set from Rubbernecker that was one of many in the SWAG Bag I received at Barb's No Foolin' Retreat. Rubbernecker certainly spoiled the attendees!!! Thanks Rubbernecker!

I used two colors of Ken Oliver Color Burst powders mixed with a wee bit of water to stamp the color first. After that dried I stamped the outline stamp with Hero Arts Intense Ink. I managed to get even messier with this technique.

I definitely had fun making this card, even if it did look better in my head than it does on paper.

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

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

A fabulous 'arty' result Jeanette - loving the foiling, it 'works' perfectly with the gorgeous flowers.
I have found that the foiling with glue is always patchy/uneven, more so once the foil is getting a bit 'worn, but i do love the results, and it fits fabulously with the loose look of your flowers

Wow Jeanette! I think your card is very artistic and trendy! I love the bright oranges and yellows. The foiling is perfect as it is. I like that it doesn't have an even border etc. This is a very lovely card!
