It’s the last day of the Splitcoast Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & I made this to fit a couple of the challenges..Janine’s Challenge & Polly’s Challenge. For all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member (click the blue link to find out how).

This is probably one of the quickest cards I’ve made in a while. The bg & white frame were already made & had been hanging around in my stash for quite awhile. If I remember correctly, I brayered the inside of the embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad then embossed it. Party Pig is the only thing I had to do. Just colored & cut him out. His hat was the only thing that didn’t come out right. Let’s just say…beware of Copics w/ the wrong caps on them. People who have watched me color have asked why I’m so quick to put the caps back on when I’m using them. This is why. If I leave the caps off, I seem to always get them mixed up. Oh well! 

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used. (The green one was the culprit! Bad marker, bad marker!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC708) we have Converse shoes. They actually have a colorful, fun site & I was inspired by THIS pair of shoes. I love the rainbow of colors.

For my card, I first white embossed the mermaid tails & little fish then used Distress reinkers & a waterbrush  to create the rainbow of colors.The paintbrush was used to float in water, a section at a time, then drops of the reinkers were added. I made another little scrap like it to use for the die cut the “Happy”. A little splatter, some sequins, the stamped rest of the greeting & done.

Here’s the inside..I did a little masking to recreate the Fintastic part.

Today’s CAS Challenge (CAS537) is all about June weddings. So I have a really quick wedding card.

The wedding couple, greeting, & candles in the corner were all white embossed on turquoise felt card stock. It’s not really made of felt, but it has that same textural look to it. It’s backed w/ a WFD (wrinkle free distress) background I made w/ Distress oxide inks. the flourish across the top was cut out of the same paper & I added a few pearls on it.

Here’s the inside. I flipped over the negative of the die cut for the front & used it as a stencil on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
