More Dirty Challenges
Here are a couple more cards for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges. I'm so far behind but hope to get some more stamping done today and tomorrow to catch up.
The first card is a combo of Jenn and Sharon's challenges. I love this card! It does look much better in real life than the picture shows. The card base is Green Galore and I added a piece of Basic Black that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Floral Fantasy Folder to it on top of dimensionals. I went over the CB'ed piece with Brilliance Moonlight White to highlight the flowers and embossing. I stamped the words from Wonderful Favorites on a piece of Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black and Green Galore and then punched the corners with a ticket corner punch and layered it on Gable Green. I added some Ice Circle brads to the corners and then mounted this piece on dimensionals on top of Green Galore. This is also on top of dimensionals on the card. I thought about using some ribbon but decided it didn't need any more embellishing. I love it when it turns out better than what I had in my head!
The second card is also another combined challenge. I used Lauren and Holly's Challenges for this one. I started out by looking through my BasicGrey 6X6 packs to find a piece of dp to use and settled on this piece from the Sugared Collection. I rounded 2 corners and sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel and added it to a Pink Pirouette cardbase that is also sponged with Creamy Caramel. The flowers from PTI's Floral Frenzy are stamped in Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, and Creamy Caramel on Curious Iridescent Cryogen White and then cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestie. I sponged around the edge with a little more Pink Pirouette and put it on a Regal Rose cut and embossed scalloped oval which is sponged with Creamy Caramel. I placed this on top of the dp and then stamped the hello circle on a Cryogen White scrap with Versamagic Gingerbread--I couldn't get the Creamy Caramel to stamp without being blotchy but since the stamps are brand new and I had to ink them up without doing the eraser treatment to them, I'm not complaining. I cut this out with a circle Nestie and then put it on top of another Regal Rose circle and Creamy Caramel scalloped circle and added it to the card with dimensionals. I finished it off with 3 pale pink dew drops and voila--all done!
Thanks for visiting and I'm off to try to get some more challenges done!
