:: Birthday Sundaes #45: Get Messy! (with inks/paints/mists) ::

Welcome to this week's Birthday Sundaes Challenge #45!

This challenge was fun, but in creating for it, I realize I need to get my hands on some more beautiful mists/paints/sprays!!! 

This week my card went unexpectedly monochromatic and not so messy, but i think it's turned out pretty!  Using my long awaited Stella Rose -Gertie 'Girly' stamp set, I stamped the image with ColourBox silver pigment ink and let it semi-dry and then embossed it to create a not-so pretty embossed image.  I also edged the corners with the same pigment ink.  Unfortunately the photo really does not do this card justice!  And of course being that it is a paint challenge this week... Liquid Pearls found their way back on my card! S:o)

Our sponsor this week is Couture Stamping by Candice Fields, an independent CTMH consultant and former Birthday Sundaes DT Member!

Candice is giving away the CTMH Fashionista stamp set, shown below.

Candice is also offering Birthday Sundaes fans a 10% discount during this challenge. You can find her store HERE and her blog HERE. To receive the discount, please email your order directly to Candice at

So start pulling out those pretty paints, mists and inks (and if you have 'em... liquid pearls!) to get messy with and submit those lovely creations with birthday sentiments! 

I can't wait to see how glorious and messy you all get this week!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
