I made this for Joanne’s fabulous Dare to Get Dirty 2012 Challenge! Check out all the Challenge details here: DTGD12Basilefamily. For my colorful card, I started by making a background on water color paper with Peerless water colors. The colors were put down in a random, almost haphazard way and when it dried, I picked an area and stamped this wonderful Poppy image (Blockheads) with black ink. I was going to leave it w/ the background, but it didn’t stand out enough, so I ended up fussy cutting it and attaching it to a white die cut panel. After figuring out where the poppy would be, I stamped just the word “poppy” onto the white bg. The layer behind it more of the plain water color bg, then another white layer. For the final water color bg, I stamped a few of the different poppy images from the set before die cutting it. I added a bright pink bow and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to play in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges this week. Lots of fun, inspiration, chatter and PRIZES!

I made this for Andrea’s DTGD Challenge on Splitcoast! Check out all the challenge details here: DTGD12AndreaEwen. For my vintagey card, I used images from several different clear sets. This scene is kind of my idea of what a Victorian parlor would look like. I started by stamping the lace (Crafty Secrets) down the side then added the two chairs (Recollections). I stamped bits of lace on scrap vanilla c/s and then stamped the chairs on top in order to paper piece the chair cushions. The little chandelier (Darcie’s) was added and the sentiment (Darcie’s) was die cut w/ Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die and attached to a black labels 8. It looked a little blank between the chairs so I added a cut out little table (Crafty Secrets). Some pears, black & clear crystals, some dots of Ranger black enamel accents and little bow topped it off. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

The images are all from DRS Designs. I masked a bunch on this and did an out of the box treatment on the snowman and sign, added a die cut black layer and put them back on top of the big bg I cut them out of. The little dog (who stole the snowman’s arm) was cut out and attached on top of my 5.50 x 4.25 card.
