I made this card for two Dare to Get Dirty challenges over on Split Coast - Jenn's challenge to be inspired by a cake seen here. And Christine's challenge to use watercoloring on a card.I immediately thought of using this designer paper that I had. I watercolored this cute little dragonfly from Artful INKables Pond Friends set - using Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils and my aquabrush - layered it on black and red panels as well as some magic mesh and stamped the sentiment on the layered circles.I don't think you can see it too well - but I outlined my dragonfly with Spica gold pen - IRL it looks all shimmery. I also stamped another head and layered it over the image. The sentiment circles are up on foam dimensionals also.

My second card is for three more challenges over on Split Coast. This weeks sketch challenge, Lauren's DTGD challenge to use monochromatic color and Michelle's DTGD challenge to make a masculine card!
Here is the sketch - I turned it on it's side to accomodate my stamped image.
I used the biker stamp from Artful INKables Motorcross set along with Charbon designer paper from Stampin Up, Basic Gray and Going Gray for my card. I added magic mesh under the image and some star snap brads.
I stamped the sentiment on Vintage Cream by PapertreyInk - punched it with the small oval punch and mounted it to a larger oval piece of Basic Grey.
So I got a lot of challenges covered today - and once again I'm getting to bed at 11:30 instead of 10! I'll try again tomorrow night!Don't forget the 10% off sale going on over at Artful Inkables through the end of July!
Thank you SO MUCH for coming by! I really truly appreciate each of you taking the time to look at my stuff! I'll be checking out yours too!
