Tueday Taggers gets Messy!

Tuesday Taggers this week is sponsored by The Craft Barn, and the challenge is to get messy. I very definitely did! I got out lots of different sprays - Adirondack colour washes, Creative colour sprays and my starburst stains (these were in pots originally, but I transferred them to some spray bottles I found in Sainsburys!) Firstly here is a picture of a bit of my mess...
and now I'd better show you the results...

All of the stamps are from Stampscapes apart from the geese flying over, and those are Lavinia stamps. It is a 'Joy Fold' card. Not sure why it's called that, but I saw a couple last week and decided to have a go. The backgrounds are all done with Adirondack colour washes apart from the scrunched/ creased one, which was done with starburst stains. I had such fun, and now I have a stash of background to use, so no doubt you will be seeing lots more!
Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally,
This card is beautiful. It's very calming and relaxing. I love the "scrunched" paper.

Hi Sally

What a beautiful card. Can't believe the messy fingers managed to not transfer anything to the gorgeous card (I would have had ink everywhere).

Oh Boy I've been missing some stunning work, going to have to re-visit tomorrow to catch up!!!

Hi Sally

Looks like you've been having great fun with all these lovely messy techniques.
It was definitely worth it, your card is just fantastic. I love how it all creates a scene and the colours are gorgeous. I could look at it for hours. Those stamps are lovely.
Hope your week is going well.
