Messy Fingers = Fun
Messy also makes a cute card, if I do say so myself! This was a fun card...the messy ones always are. I started out with a mostly white paper with circles by MME, adhered a few butterfly masks by Heidi Swapp and spritz lightly with some Maya Mist. Then, I proceeded to mostly cover up the butterflies by layering some American Crafts crafts goodness with some MM stickers and stitching. After I adhered everything I took sandpaper to distress all of the additions to make them blend better with the misted background. I usually have a rough time with the collagey look, but this came together so easily. I am quite proud of myself : ) I am also excited to say, I used stuff from my scrap pile; the circle and scallop were from my scrap pile circa April 09. Thank you to Nicole at PTI for the inspiration for using scraps! Here is a close up of the collagey goodness.
