I choose to use the card sketch and created this card, featuring lots of numbers. I started by using the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Number Collage, added the ruler ribbon from 7Gypsies and the rubon.

True XOXO challenge #26 -Let's Get Messy!
To have a chance at joining our design team for a month, be inspired by our messy challenge or scraplift any of our layouts. It's totally up to you, just roll up your sleeves, spread the dropcloth down and get messy!

Well I started off with a messy subject, my DD getting a painting lesson. First I lightly painted the Chipboard letters with Cream Acrylic paint then topped the paint with Moonlight Smooch. The chipboard frame started off metallic pink in color, I sanded that and inked it with Tea Dye Distress Ink, the outside edges with Memento Dye ink in Rich Cocoa, the inside edge of the frame with Colorbox ink in Merlot & topped it all off with Quick Quotes ink color Bloody Mary (Which is really a reddish brown). The instruction card was inked an aqua blue color from Colorbox. I couldn't forget the papers I made droplets from Alcohol Inks in Butterscotch & Stream, then inked the papers with the Tea Dye Distress Ink & the Memento Dye Ink in Rich Cocoa.

Closeup- I didn't want to completely cover the letters in paint so with a very dry brush added Cream Acrylic paint then topped the paint with Moonlight Smooch.
