I am moving very slowly through the Dare to Get Dirty challenges. I had this grandiose plan to make 4 of each card... 2 for me and 2 for Operation Write Home. That means, I am spending a lot of time on a single challenge. Tomorrow I will change that so I can get more challenges completed. I can always duplicate later, right?
I posted one card yesterday...today I have 3. Again, I can't specify what the challenges are. These are fun extras for Fan Club members over at Splitcoaststampers. However, I will give you some basic details on what is included in each card.
Next I have a Christmas card. I planned on keeping it very simple with no coloring. But I managed to get black embossing powder showing up in all the wrong places. I used LOTS of different markers to color this image from Paper Inspirations. I sponged sahara sand and a combo of baja breeze and night of navy. Touches of gold embossing were used for the crowns. The entire image was cut out on my Big Shot, using the SU framelits. My ribbon is long-retired purely pomegranate satin, so I used the matching ink for the sentiment (from SU "Come to Bethlehem.") Oh...the card base is brushed gold, with the front embossed, using the fancy fans folder.
4 each of these cards is great for my stash, but I better get cranking on the other challenges!!
