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.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC661) & I chose Brit+Co. I love their colorful displays & I chose the picture below for my inspiration.



To make my card, I stamped the different cactus plants, colored them & the large one had a matching die but the 2 smaller were fussy cut. I used an stitch arch die to cut the window opening & to make the frame around the opening. Then I put a piece of watercolor background behind it. The greeting was stamped on a stitched tag die cut & I used my die resizing technique to shorten the tag.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

The Special this month is the Sweet Gum  stamp & Sympathy die – 50% off! 

For my clean & simple card, I made a water color background using Distress reinkers, on some lightweight watercolor paper. There wasn’t a science to it..I just floated in some fall colors & let them mingle & run until I was happy w/ it then I used a heat tool to dry it & stop the colors from running any more. I put it into my Misti and stamped the Sweet Gum branch randomly. Originally, I was going to fussy cut some of the branches to use, but I decided I liked it just as is. Since the paper was fairly lightweight, I glued it to a piece of 110# card stock then die cut it.  The greeting was stamped & I attached it to the card.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!
