I'm back again with another card for today's Dare to Get Dirty challenges!  For this card I got my fingers very inky!  I sponged Twisted Citron, Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean distress inks and sprayed them with my Tim Holtz sprayer.  I love how this came out!  The colors didn't blend as much as I thought they would and I resisted temptation to add larger water drops because as it was drying I thought it was so cool!  I used my Simon Says Painted Happy Birthday dies, cut out in black and added glossy accents.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh Droplets and popped the panel up to finish the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi everyone!  Today we are starting off the Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoast!  For the next week we will have several challenges to play in, we would love if you could join us, it's tons of fun!!  My card for today is for dini's challenge.  This one was quite a challenge for me, I didn't read it correctly when I signed up for it so when I went back I had quite a surprise!  Ha!  But it was fun, I'm always up for a good challenge!  I've had the woodgrain panel on my desk for a while, I was puttering around with my card, I had already picked out the lime color, I held the woodgrain up to the lime and it went so well together!  I used my MFT Always and Forever Stamp Set, Ampersand die and Peek a Boo hearts dies.  So fun!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

thanks so very much

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch and today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoast.  I chose to CASE this card, her layout was similar to the sketch challenge.  I kept the theme but only used 1 color added a layer, Nuvo's and used alcohol inks on Yupo!!  Also, I didn't use glitter on my die cut.  I'm really loving playing with alcohol reinkers and blending solution on Yupo, so much fun and you never get the same result twice!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Rough

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge.  The cue card is Rough.  I was a bit stumped but when I got to my stamp room the ideas started floating!  I really need to use my stencils more, I don't have a lot of them but I have a lot of fun when I do play!  I spread some black in on my craft mat and lightly mixed in my embossing paste, I wanted it to look somewhat dirty or "rough" but not completely black.  I applied the washi tape, colored the super adorable dog from MFT's You Make My Tail Wag stamp set and applied him with pop dots.  I added small black Nuvo dots over his eyes and glossy accents on his nose.  The sentiment is from MFT's I Knead You stamp set.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Background Bonanza

Hi everyone!  Today I have my final entry into MFT's Camp Create!  It was another fun week with lots of great video's and challenges!  For my card I used my Recipe for Happiness stamps set and picked out the little images in the set.  I colored over all the images with my clear Wink of Stella, I wasn't able to capture it in the photo but it is fun and sparkly!  I tend to not use the small images very much, I really need to change that because I love how this card turned out!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
