Hot Mess - April 2024

I'm a day late. Yesterday was the 12th but it was a busy DT day on my blog so I'm posting my Hot Mess Success card today instead. 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.

Sarah, of The Paper Cut was at the retreat I went to last week. She demonstrated how to "pounce" alcohol ink onto Yupo paper. It was a lot of fun - especially watching the design form without any real planning. For this month's Hot Mess card I pulled out my small stash of alcohol inks and gave it another try.

The color are so rich and vibrant! I was really quite happy with how it turned out, even if my fingers are VERY blue.

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!
