A {Messy} Layout & 2 Cards

I was busy last night. I did a layout & 2 cards. I was on a role let me tell ya. Also didn't hurt that I was watching one of my new favourite shows, Person of Interest, on line. I have always liked crime dramas and this show is such a different twist on that genre.

Now to my scrappy stuff. I did the layout for Amy's Tuesday Temptations Challenge from February 4th. The challenge was to get messy, which can be difficult for me, but I did it! I started with the cream cardstock, put a template over it & then used a sponge and "pounced" Basic Grey ink over it. Then I laid it down and dropped droplets of spray mists on it, then sprayed it with about 4 different sprays. Ripped the edges and inked it with blue  ink. I thought all that made it less feminine. Thumbs Up I also inked the paper that I was matting my picture with, the tag (or what ever you would call that) and the saying strip...which I then cut up

Next up is my take on Laurie's Finally Friday Challenge from February 8th. It is my version of a Valentine's card for my know you can't get mushy with 15 year old boys. Embarrassed

This is a scrap lift from a picture that I saved on my computer before I had Pinterest. If you know the original source, please let me know so that I can give credit where credit is due.

Finally, here is my take on Teresa's Wild Card Wednesday Challenge from this week. T wanted us to KISS~Keep It Simple Silly and use 4 layers and a port hole in our card. I made this card for my daughter's Valentine.

If you want to participate in any of these challenges, head on over to Scraptures and join us. We love getting new friends!
