This is for another Dare to Get Dirty Challenge. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

I finally finished a background I could live with for Lydia’s DTGD challenge. There are still several fails hanging around. And since the Free for All Challenge on Friday was birds, I colored this digi image & added it along w/ a greeting stamped on a chat bubble die cut.
Here’s the inside & the Copics I used for the bird.

Supplies:

Stamps: From the Heart Stamps – Innertube Birdbrain (digital), Serendipity StampsUplifting Words (inside: Serendipity Stamps: Sending Smiles )
Paper: Staples 110# white, water color
Ink:Memento tuxedo black, Versafine Clair nocturne
Accessories:  Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles dies, MFT stitched arch dies, watercolors, fine tip sharpie, Penny Black chat bubbles dies, clear sequins



This was for another DTGD Challenge, the Color Challenge & also the Fan Club Christmas Challenge.

I used Copic markers & a gold Krylon on glossy paper to make my bg layer & the poinsettia petals. The greeting was stamped onto the brushed gold w/ the warm violet ink & heat embossed w/ a transparent sparkly powder. Then all I did was put it all together.
Here’s the inside.

For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all! 

Supplies:

Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (greeting)
