Birthday Sundaes Challenge #45

Hi Crafters,
This week the challenge at Birthday Sundaes is awesome! The challenge is to 'get messy'! (use your mists, inks, etc.) Who doesn't love getting messy!

For this weeks challenge I pulled out some markers I have that you blow into the end of and they give you this neat splattered/spray look. I first cut some die cuts out using my Cricut and then attached them with some double sided tape. Once I sprayed the background I peeled off the die cuts and then sprayed my card again in a different colour. I really love the effect this gives!

Check out my inspiration card for you below and then head over to the Birthday Sundaes blog to see the rest of the DT creations. After that head into your craft area and make a mess, then lastly post your card creation for us to see!
Happy 'messy' crafting!

This was the first card I created using just two colours. 

Then I got a great idea and thought what if I just peel some of the die cuts off at time and use multiple colours. LOVE IT!

Cardstock: Staples + scraps
Ribbon: Offray

Great way to use those mist. I have some that have been sitting there for a year since I didn't really know what to do. Thanks for sharing such a fun way.
