    Today’s Color Challenge (CC434) on Splitcoast, is a Christmas in July set of colors…w/ the dessert option of making it a Christmas card. Looks like dessert for me!

    The images are from DRS Designs. After stamping my Cowboy Snowman, I used the Color Challenge/Christmas colors to color everything. I made two frames, a brownish/kraft and a dk red. The brownish one was embossed w/ a distressed stripe folder then I  tore openings in both and attached the red one on top. The trees were die cut and added on top. I used a star shape tearing template for the sentiment and white acrylic paint to splatter the “snow”. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Congrats to Silke (silli) FS327!  She has such a big, beautiful gallery that it was hard to choose just one! I finally settled on the layout of her Penny Black card, but I noticed she has quite a few cards w/ a purple & green color combo and I really like that, so those are the colors I chose. I kept the layout and punched sides, but I changed the colors, used different images and changed the theme from Christmas to western.

    The images are form DRS Designs. To begin, I sponged the green inks across the bottom of white card stock and the purple, blue-violets across the top. The cowboy garb was stamped on part of it and cut out. The rest became the layer behind the image. I used a southwest border punch down both sides of the dk purple/violet panel. The main part of the sentiment was die cut and the “Y’all” part was stamped and punched w/ the smallest one of a multi tag punch.I stamped the accessories on the white panel and attached the fussy cut hat and boot and added some shading w/ copic markers. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

    Congrats again, Silke, enjoy your week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    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.
