Hi today is the day the Hot Mess Success group posts their creations and what fun it is to check out what everyone creates. I have learned new techniques from watching Kelly, Jeanette, Barb. Terry and most recently Darlene create for the last year. This month I am honored to be able to join these wonderful ladies in making a hot mess. I'm no stranger to "messes" however, being creative being messy....hmmm. I can't wait to try.
For my card for this month I decided to make an alcohol ink background. I set out to watch a few you tube videos and get some pointers. Lately I have tried some paint pouring and it seems like this works on the same basis to a degree. So...I set up my table with paper underneath my project. In one of the videos I saw the instructor crunch up paper and add alcohol along with ink. Rather than crumple the paper I chose to use a diamond patterned embossing folder to create the folds. I chose 3 different kinds of paper to try this out on, Shiny white paper, shimmer white paper and prism paper. To be honest I liked both the shiny and shimmer paper better than the alcohol ink prism paper.
Here is my finished card.. Thank you so much for stopping by. Stop by the rest of the hot mess crew's blogs and see what they have created. I am sure you will not be disappointed
Until next time,
