It's August and that means my emotions are all over the place! By this time next week, my teens will have their first day of the 2015/2016 school year behind them. It's a big year at our house with a freshman and senior in high school. The fun part about the first week of August is that means it's time to enjoy a week of fun Dare to get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers!
I would love to say that I was able to get my team on board and everyone agreed to this permission slip but instead I received groans, a couple of outright "no's" and a glazed look in the eyes! LOL
Today kicks off the first day of challenges and I played along with two of the six challenges.
Now I can't tell you what the challenges are but I can tell you how I made the card for Lydia's fun DTGD15UnderstandblueA!
I sponged TH Distress Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves ink in a random pattern. I spritzed water on the MFT Confetti BG Stamp and rubbed the sponged side of my background onto the stamp (it's a large stamp so it's easier to place the cardstock on the stamp instead of stamping on the paper). The result was that the wet random confetti dots bleached through ink! Cool, don't you think?
Snowflakes - Top Dog Dies
Believe- Little Yellow Bicycle
Doily Border- Sweet 'N Sassy
I also played along with Lee's fun DTGD15LuvLee challenge. For this card, I rescued a bokeh background from my reject pile. I die cut a Penny Black word die that I received from my sweet friend Janine of Brain Waves.
Celebrate - Penny Black
