We’re moving along…it’s already Day 3 of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges. We’ve had some really fun ones this year. One of the fun things about being a DTGD hostess is that we get to see the challenges ahead of time so we can make samples for our fellow hostesses. There is a lot of planning and coordination involved in this event and everyone does a super fantastic job working together to pull it off. It’s one of the ways Splitcoaststampers gives back to their Fan Club Members. If you haven’t checked out SCS or the Fan Club yet what are you waiting for?
Here’s the card reveal for the sneak peak I gave you yesterday:
This was a sample card I made for Robin’s challenge (a.k.a. stamperrobin). Although it was a bit out of my comfort zone, I had fun piling on the supplies for this mixed media piece. I did a lot of spraying and painting to get the colors just right. This piece has so much texture too…I added mini art stones, layered die cuts, pearls, Prima roses, a metal key, ribbon, etc. I added Gesso to everything and sprayed again to get the patina look. While this card may look heavy and bulky it’s surprisingly light.
One of the other sample cards I made was for Marg’s (a.k.a. margscardcrazy) challenge. This was more up my alley.
I created a soft rainbow watercolor wash background and die cut the sentiment (after it all dried) then pieced it back in with a couple of additional layers to make it more dimensional. I didn’t want to add a stamped image or anything to distract from that dreamy background so I just added a few clear sequins. I love the way this one turned out. Looks like melted sherbet, doesn’t it? Mmmmmmm.
And, finally, I made this get well card for Janine’s (a.k.a. jaybee) challenge in which I channeled my inner Sandy-Allnock. I am so inspired by Sandy’s work and follow her blog regularly. She’s a fantastic paper-crafter and artist.
I will be back tomorrow for Day 4 of our Dare to Get Dirty Challenges with a few more cards that I’ve made. In the meantime, I will leave you with a sneak peak of the sample I made for my friend Jean’s (a.k.a. naturecoastcrafter) challenge. Come back tomorrow to see the entire card.
