Challenge #14: Get Messy!!!

WOW!! You ladies totally blew us away with a record-breaking 63 entries on Challenge #13!
We loved looking at all your birthday creations.

Amber's here with Challenge #14 and I hope you're just as inspired by this challenge!

I am challenging you to "Get Messy!"
Pull out your paints, sprays, inks, watercolors, even chalks - something other than your standard little ink pad, that is unless of course you can get messy using that too!
Have fun. Be artistic. But make sure you get messy!

Here is what I created:
On my card I spritzed part of the background and then stamped the flowers using acrylic paints instead of ink.

On my layout I used homemade sprays (acrylic paint and water) on my background and then applied clear glitter glue over it

And the rest of the Design Team:

Charity used Tattered Angels mists on her paper, doilies, and on the flowers as well to create this stunning layout.

Charissa used distress inks to create the ombre effect of the
triangles and also on the color magic paper (the chevrons). I'm told she was red for days. Now that's dedication to the craft!

Erica used a combination of sprays, masks, and paint to create the beautiful chevrons on her layout and card. Aren't they both breathtaking?!

Kristy used Distress Stain and spritzes to get this wonderful look on her sweet layout. I just love the splattered background she created.

Kyla used inks and water splatters on her little rainbow mini tag book. I love those rich colors she was able to achieve on these!

I just want to remind everyone to double-check the rules below. I noticed a couple entrants who weren't followers of our little ol' blog. Luckily the winner drawn was!

Also, while it is not necessary to enter, we'd love it if  you followed us on facebook as well!
