The Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC663) is a fun, colorful site..mostly nail polish, but it’s very colorful nail polish! I was mostly influenced by THIS picture & THIS picture.

After reading about this technique last week in the Dare to Get Dirty challenges, it led me to a video HERE. I’m not sure of the name of this technique, so I’ll go w/ what it’s called on the video..Pop Art Prints or Magazine Resist. The funny thing is, even though I watched the video several times, I still did it wrong. Maybe that’s why I had so many fails. But this is one of the few that actually worked. I had to go out and buy a magazine because all of my magazines were put in the recycle bin when we moved. I found this Harper’s Bazaar & the pages looked really shiny so I bought it. (Yeah, I know a thrift shop would have been great but there isn’t one around here.)

I used a brayer to spread a thin layer of black acrylic paint onto my Gel plate, placed the magazine picture on top, pressed it down all over, then pulled the page off.  I pressed a plain white piece of card stock on top of the Gel plate, rubbed it firmly, then lifted it. Then I added some thin layers of paint in different colors. What I should have done, was dry the black print on the gel plate & spread the thin layers of color on top of it before putting the card stock on top & lifting the print. Oh well. I’m just happy it worked! The greeting was heat embossed directly on the print.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.
