Controlled Chaos Thanks:

Hi all!  I hope your weekend has been warm and sunny!  We have had a icky Spring storm that brought in A LOT of snow.

This was in less than 24 hours - wet and heavy snow - yuck!!!

I am trying to think of a positive thing about all that snow, but nothing comes to mind :S

Oh wait, that means that I had lots of time in my craftroom - that's positive right???

I almost threw out the card below but was happy that I saw some potential in it.  I accidentally smeared the black splotches when I was doing the paste, but was able to cover up the "oopsies" - so all was well!!

I started with sponging Hero Arts Pastel Green with My Favorite Things Small Checkerboard stencil.  I then used some cheapy Michaels watercolours and "splotched" with a paintbrush.  Next I wanted to add some texture with My Favorite Things Diagonal Stripes and Ranger Texture paste.  I added a Paper Smooches Thanks Wise Die with some black foam that I got at my local dollar store (score!) and felt it needed just a bit more, so I also added an Altenew Label Love stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  Lastly I added a couple Doodlebug Beetle Black enamel dots.

I created this card for the following challenges:

(use white and one other colour)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Cheers to you all!!

I am so glad you did not through this awesome card out Deanne. I love it. Remember, "there are no mistakes in stamping".

It's perfect Deanne, so glad you managed to salvage the smudges. That's a lot of snow too. So glad it meant you 'had' to stay inside and craft instead. Seems ideal to me!
Stay warm honey.
