Dare to Get Dirty Post #6

Today I'm sharing the last 10 cards I made for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges over at Splitcoaststampers.  

Challenge:  No Tools Allowed - Use your fingers
For my background, I rubbed Crackled Texture paste over a white panel, sprinkled it with Distress Glitter and let it dry. Then pressed the panel onto my craft mat where I had spread Distress Oxide inks that were spritzed with water. After drying that with my heat tool, I rubbed Distress Vintage Photo over the top with my finger to accent the crackle. I die cut the Hello 3 times and adhered it over the panel.

Challenge:  Be inspired by two Pinterest Boards (floral or Christmas)
 I antiqued my Vintage Santa by stamping him in Potting Soil ink and then sponging around him with Ranger Distress Tea Dye and Old Paper Inks. I then flicked water from the palm of my hand onto the panel to get waterspots. I added a sticker sentiment and a little holly sprig cut from a larger sticker from K and Co. I used a Copic to give Santa his pink cheeks!

I used the SCS Pop Up Box Tutorial - love these cards. My grandnephew is turning 7 in Sept and loves dinosaurs - I knew I wanted to make this pop up for him.

another card using shaving cream and reinkers for the background!

Challenge:  Shake it Up - Shaker Card

Challenge:  Fussy and Floral
I stamped my images with Archival black ink and then colored them with Distress Crayons using a brush and water. I stamped the bloom again coloring just the center part of the flower. I fussy cut the images and layered them with foam dots inside the die cut dots framing.

What a fabulous group of cards! You have been very busy and they all look wonderful.
Your Santa is such a jolly, vintage Santa image. He is perfect with this soft vintage look and your colour choices for background is great. I like the black sentiment strip!

Another terrific collection of cards, Julia. I adore the trio of "hellos" against your hand-crackled background, and the pop up box is simply amazing. The gentle colours and bold strips of the butterfly one are really appealing too.
