Dare to Get Dirty!!

Over the next week (July 30 - August 5), the Dirty Dozen design team and alumni will be hosting a week packed with fun challenges for Splitcoaststampers fan club members! This is my first time participating, and *I* even get to host a challenge - but - more about that on Tuesday! Today we're kicking the party off with 5 challenges, and you can expect 4-6 challenges each day! The challenges will be posted at around 8:00 CST. You can find all the details over at SCS - if you're not a Fan Club member, now's a great time to join - come Dare to Get Dirty with us!!

I've provided samples for two of the challenges today - I'll share one card today and one tomorrow. This card is for Lydia's challenge. For this sample I used the Poppies set from Sheena Douglass' line of Paint Fusion stamps, stamping the images first, then painting over them. I used acrylic paints on the image - actually this is several images, as the set is made of individual 'parts' that you stamp together to create your own floral scene. I LOVE these sets, and will be ordering more soon. They are so versatile, and the artwork is just perfect for any coloring medium. By the way, this designer cardstock held up really well under the acrylic paint - I wasn't sure if it would warp or not.

Hope you'll come play with us!!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. The sentiment I used is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - I love this one!
