So here I am doing MORE challenges! This is all for the Dare to Get Dirty week.

This first card is for Lindsay’s (aka jacksonbelle) Black, Brown and White flower challenge. Pretty cool look for flowers I think!

bwb la challenge I LOVE the way this turned out. I really like the whimsical yet elegant images this set offers. Iused Jolies Fleur, and Funky Floral (hello sentiment) by Lizzie Anne Designs

NOTE: Lindsay is having a Lizzie Anne contest! Check it out!

SOOOOOOOOOO-I Stamped on Kraft cardstock in basic black ink.

I then colored with my Copic markers in a light brown shade. I used a white pencil for the flower parts. Its generally one used for the crayon resist type of technique but I liked the fuzzy look it gave.

Copper tag made with my Making Memories tag maker. There is glitter on the flower that is on the tag done with my Sakura glitter pen.

The satin ribbon is a deep chocolate color-by Martha Stewart.


Pretty Papertrey Borders

PT pale challenge Well this one I LOVE because I love purple, scallops, butterflies and pastels! I did this one for Jan’s (aka JanTink) Lighter shade of pale challenge.

Alexa has a pair of PJ’s like this so it totally inspired me. Its everywhere if you just LOOK!

I made my scalloped punches into flowers! I also love my idea of making a word within the border stamp! I just stamped HAPPY first, then (because they are clear) I placed my block with dotted image over the word before inking, and colored only what should be (to omit dots over the word) with my markers. PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!

I used the following sets from Paper Trey Ink – Butterfly Kisses, Border & Corners circles, Paper Tray (sentiments), And Green Thumb (the swirl for the fluttertrail, stems and leaves). What a way to squeeze almost every PT set owned right!

Im totally bummed cause RIGHT after I punched the pink scallop my SU! Punch bit the dust! Just like everyone else. I am fuming. Its a supah cute scallop too.

I used that scallop and the Marvy Giga circle one as well. Ribbon is by American Crafts.

Now onto Vintage Values.

This card was done for the challenge sample that Meg (aka WAYO) hosted.

It is my very favorite Gina K stamp.

 Barrow of Friendship

vintage values I am not generally into sponging, but after this card I was hooked! I LOVE how this turned out. My paper matched perfect (Sorry NO CLUE where I got it!) and inspired my flowers in the barrow.

I stamped the wagon on natural ivory cardstock. I used my singlo gel pen in white for the daisies. Drew in some grass, pucnhed out with my Giga Scallop circle then sponged in 3 different types of Tim Holts distressing inks! Those are as awesome as you hear they are. You can get them at ALL THAT SCRAPS

My card layer is also natural ivory stamped with the WEAVE bkgd from CHF, which is a favorite of mine as well. The sentiment is by A Muse. I stamped the word “friend” again in olive to make my tab on the side.

You know I love MARTHA! So I used her border punch and ribbon to help complete the look.

Now onto Jenn’s challenge (aka jbalcer). She used a color challenge. This was my take on it

Sunshiny Day

impress brights I loved all the bright colors. This flower is the same one I used for my Acetate sample, in another post. Its from Impress. I believe Savyy makes it. I had this ribbon by Fancy Pants and it was my inspiration. I RARELY use all brights. So this was a fun challenge for me.

Added a POP of black with my Sakura gel pen. The sentiment is from A Muse

Pretty cheery dont you think.

Thanks for looking!
