Dare to Get Dirty 2015

After a huge case of the blahs and major anxiety this week, I finally managed to make a few cards!  I am going to share the first two I made for the new Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoast.   If you are a member of the Fan Club over there go check them out!  It's a ton of challenges in one week, so I know I probably won't even get close to finishing them.   They did get me out of the funk of the week and start this month off stamping, so that's fabulous!

This card was super fun to make.  Laila talked me into buying this mermaid stamp last week and I have to say, it's scary!!!    I am definitely not an expert at coloring people and she's a super hard one to do.   I think a little girl will love this one though.  :)   It's for Lydia's first challenge.

Stamps:  Penny Black Mimi the Mermaid, Altenew Super Script,MFT Polka Dot background
Ink:  Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Copics, SU Bermuda Bay
Paper:  Neenah Solar White
Tools:  Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle dies, Simon Says Stamp Medium Dot die, MFT Blueprints 20
Embellishments:  Stampin' Up! Brights Collection Buttons, SU White Baker's Twine, Pretty Pink Posh and SSS sequins

My second card is for Teresa's challenge.   I had so much fun with this one!  I love making these backgrounds!

Stamps:  Unity
Ink:  Lots of Tim Holtz distress inks, MFT Black Licorice
Paper:  SU Elegant Eggplant, Neenah Solar White
Tools:  Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle dies
Embellishments:  Studio Calico Wood Veneers Stars, Heidi Swapp Color Shine Tinsel, water

I have a few more in the works, including a Two Papers Divas card for this week and I'm off to finish those up.  It maybe be later tomorrow before you see those as the good lighting is gone for the day and we have plans for early tomorrow.   Stay tuned though!
