Dare To Get Dirty!!

I'm hosting a challenge over at Splitcoaststampers for our week-long series of Dare To Get Dirty challenges for our Fan Club members. Here are the cards I made for samples - if you're a Fan Club member, I'd love for you to play along!! You can find all the details at Splitcoast.

 My first project was inspired by this new find and vignette in my front room - I was soooooo excited to find this old window frame the other day! (My walls are not really that bright... weird how cameras mess with colors inside...)

The Tudor Windows image is an older stamp from Impression Obsession... it's a really fun one to dress up with diecuts or Flowersoft. I colored the image with Touch Twin Markers and added a few acrylic paint highlights on the window panes. The sentiment was stamped on a Quickutz diecut, and the bird die was cut from a textured paint sample.

For my second card, I used a new Impression Obsession image from Alesa Baker called Clothespins, and my background was done with two stamps, Cover-a-Card Graph Paper and Worn Rose Branch, using Color Box chalk inks. The sentiment comes from a small clear set called Mini Messages.
I cut out one clothespin and popped it up on foam tape, to make it look like it's holding my knotted silk ribbon and tag.
 I used just a few Touch Twin Markers this time:

I hope you enjoy YOUR day! If you're a Fan Club member, I hope you'll play along with me!
Thanks for stopping by!
