Sprinkles for you Birthday

Today is the 12th and it is time for another Hot Mess card.  This is card number 21 and we are well into year #2. The idea of Hot Mess ~ Success started with Kelly and the general theme is to Get Messy and you will have Success!  Messiness can be almost anything that we come up with--glitter, alcohol inks, glimmer glitz, sponged backgrounds, etc., anything that is a bit messy.  We are a group of 6 and we will post a card each month on the 12th.  The links to the other 5 members are on my left side bar and I will also link them at the bottom at this post.

For this month's messiness,  I used a brand new to me stencil that I received last month in our sweet Taylored Expressions Stamp Joy box.  It is called Sprinkles! This stencil is a turnabout type stencil that can be used with up to 4 colors and rotated each time.   I used some Picket Fence Paper Glaze with it and this is try #4 or 5-I lost count......  I had three colors picked out and each time when I got to the third color, the glaze seeped under the stencil and I had a puddled sprinkle!  I was not sure if it was the glaze, so I used a different color and it still happened.  Then, I thought the stencil was not totally dry--still happened.  Then, I used Pixie Spray and still happened!  So, I decided that after adding the the two colors of glaze, the stencil did not fit flat on the cardstock and the third color of glaze got underneath, hence causing the puddle.  So--I only used two--Cornflower Blue and Leaf Grass!  Done!!!

The image is a sweet stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs called Purrfect Birthday!  I colored with my Copic Sketch Markers and added a piece of Pacific Point ribbon as a flag.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, birthday sentiment strips.

Here is the inside of my card, with a strip of the colorful paper:
