Pink Flamingos cu 09623
best-of-2016-scs-smaller
This was made for my DTGD challenge & we’d love for you to join in so for all the details go to the Dare to Get Dirty Forum ..but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member. It’s sooooo easy!

While I can’t give you the challenge details here I can share how I made this card. These flamingos are so pretty & they begged to come home & live w/ me. I love birds so how could I refuse? I put them into my Misti, stamped them Memento, colored w/ Copics , added a few white highlights w/ a Prismacolor pencil, then over stamped w/ Versafine. After die cutting w/ the matching dies (well…they were a set!), I stamped, colored & fussy cut a bunch of hibiscus to add at their feet. Pink Flamingos 09625
For the window scene, I die cut the octagon in white layer, added a slightly smaller black octagon frame then sponged the scene onto the white octagon I cut out. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunlight on the water & the surf at the water’s edge. The stamped, die cut palm tree (part of the flamingo set) was added & the greeting stamped between the flamingos. The little stitched black strip on the card front had to be added because I did what I do when I get in a hurry, & I scored the card front in the wrong place. So..I had to have something to cover the weird score line.  😉 

I’m also adding this card to the Simon Says Wed. Challenge – Anything Goes!

Here are the Copics I used.

Aloha Surfboards cu 06972 It’s day 2 of Dare to Get Dirty on Splitcoast and this is for MY (justwritedesigns) Challenge! The details are HERE, but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member…it’s easy, just click to find out how. 

Aloha Surfboards 06971 I had a lot of fun making this card. It’s just my style..fun, enough detail to keep me interested, a little coloring, a little fussy cutting & colorful! I started with the background. After masking off the water area, I sponged in the very orange sky using a cloud stencil I made w/ scallop scissors on a piece of acetate. The little seagulls were stamped & I used a white gel pen on the big one. The mask was reversed to cover the sky then I sponged in the water & added the highlights. I added just a touch of sand color at the very bottom. (The palm tree was also stamped on the background as well as the frame.)

Then I stamped, colored & fussy cut the surfboards. The top palm tree is actually part of the white frame. A little technique I call “into the window” and here’s a short tutorial showing how I did it. After stamping the palm tree where I wanted it & coloring it, I first die cut the large, outer frame, then determined the areas around the palm tree I would have to cut in order to slip the corner of the die under it. It turned out to be almost all of it, lol. There are actually only 2 places where the tree is still attached to the frame. (Click any pic to make it larger.)

Please pay no attention to my blue tipped fingernails, lol. That always happens when I sponge images. The inside frame die is in place & with the corner under the tree, I ran it thru the Big Shot.

And here’s a look at the inside. More sponging & I left off a greeting for now. Have to decide who it’s going to!

It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast and I made this for Cindy’s (DTGD13onehappystamper) fabulous challenge! You’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view the challenge, so check it out! Since I took my Copic certification classes from Cindy, I thought I’d better use them for her challenge! For my card, stamped the large sunflowers, colored them w/ Copics and fussy cut them. I added just a hint of sparkle in the flower centers w/ a Spica pen. They’re attached to white die cut layer.

I have 2 tutorials for doing this Monoprint Background…the first was for the Splitcoast Fan Club back in 2099 when I was on the Dirty Dozen team. If you’re aFan Club member, you can view it HERE. The second, is an updated tutorial from June 2013 with a few fun additions and you can view it HERE. This background is part of some I made using a chevron stencil and pigment ink. When I finished one background, I put the stencil (with all the ink still on it), ink side down on another sheet and brayered over it and this is what I got. It’s attached to a chevron embossed white background. The greeting was stamped on a die cut circle and attached to a stacked die cut pennant flag. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used:
