Hot Mess - Take 47

This is the 11th of June, but I'm sharing my Hot Mess Success card a day early, as I have a design team post on my blog tomorrow. 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. The idea is to make a mess while making the card for the challenge; the card itself does not need to be messy. (I felt the need to clarify that because people will often comment that my card doesn't look messy.) Other than that, it's anything goes.

I recently saw a tutorial Dina Kowal put on SCS called Drywall Tape Techniques. It intrigued me so I promptly ordered some drywall tape and decided to give it a whirl for this month's Hot Mess Success.

Now, lest you think I cheated; that this wasn't messy... I kid you not, my entire left palm was blue. I'm not sure how I did that and of course it washed off without a problem, but it was a MESS.

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!
