Posts Tagged ‘Dare to Get Dirty’

I made this for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC714) & also for Joanne’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.You can find all the details for the challenges HERE. You’ll need to be a Fan Club Member, so click the blue link & find out how. For the IC, my inspiration was THIS. 

This wreath took me quite a while to make. If I had used paper for the leaves, it would have been easier but if you always take the easy route, you probably miss all the good scenery. Anyway, that’s my story & I’m sticking to it. So what did I use for the leaves? 

Some aluminum soda type cans! These were sparkling water cans & I’m here to tell you, they don’t make these cans like they used to. They are much thinner & very easy to cut & also to die cut. I turned over the can pieces & used the aluminum colored side. After die cutting, I was going to coat them w/ paint first, but I forgot. So I used alcohol inks to colors them. They’re really bright & shiny (but also sharp!). I used a woodgrain image on the backgrounds & added a sheer copper bow to finish it.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this for the final Dare to Get Dirty challenge for 2019 at Splitcoaststampers. Lydia shared a video HERE for an easy technique using a gel plate, acrylic paint & a small object. (You may have to be a Fan Club Member to view the forum. Click the blue link to find out how.) It looked interesting & easy so I gave it a try.

I ended up doing 2 pressings of the gel print. The first time, I put neon yellow & neon orange paint onto my gel plate, pressed & slid the object (it happened to be an empty plastic ring from my ATG gun) then pressed the white card onto to it & rubbed. It didn’t look quite dramatic enough, so I repeated the process using black paint & pressed it to the same piece of card. I like it, but it’s awfully busy. I thought the colors would fit a Halloween card so I die cut all the pieces & arranged them as you see. I used a few fluorescent Copics to add color to the roof & windows & added the die cut ground out of neon orange card.
