Hi y’all! This is my last Dare to Get Dirty Challenge sample and this one is for the challenge I’m hosting!

Well, this is the view I wish I had! And I wouldn’t mind a pair of them highfalutin’ boots, neither! Think if I call up Nocona Boots and ask them to make a pair, they’d go for it? Anyway, the inside says “Have a Texas sized Birthday” and this one is going to my Dad. He still lives in Texas. I don’t think he’d wear the kinda girlie looking boots, but he’ll like the view, too.

For my inset window scene, I sponged on the greens at the bottom and the blue and purples at the top. Since the green and purple don’t play well together, I left just a smidge of white between the two. When I had the color intensity I wanted, I stamped the silhouette scene on top then die cut it. I cut a very narrow white layer to back it, then put it back on top of the background it was cut from. The white layer has a larger rectangle die cut window and I added some backing layers to elevate it slightly. The little bluebonnets and sentiment were stamped directly on the bottom. I had a little of the sponged background left, so I stamped the boots and hat onto this and cut them out. The finished card is 6.50 x 5.00.

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! This is the final challenge, but y’all still have until Aug 6th to upload your creations in the Dare to Get Dirty Forum on Splitcoast.
