Dare to Get Dirty Begins!!!!

It's Dare to Get Dirty week over at SCS - if you're a fan club member come on and join the fun!!! :) All the details can be found HERE! I'm a little late off the mark and I've started by combining 3 of the challenges because I've been very ill this week beginning with a bad asthma attack Wednesday and then spending most of Thursday unconscious thanks to a severe migraine. Normally I would try not to combine challenges but I really don't want to push my already fragile head. Soooooo, I've combined Becca's, One Happy Stamper's and KrystieLee's challenges.

I started with a base of Tangerine Tango, layered with Very Vanilla and then some of this yummy Bloom & Grow paper from My Mind's Eye! It's actually 2 sheets from the same range. I stamped the image from JustRite's brand new Friendship Set in Close to Cocoa on Very Vanilla and coloured with markers and a blender pen and cut it out with the Large Circle Nestabilities and popped it up with foam tape. Then I cut a piece of Tangerine Tango with the Small Circle Nestabilities to mat it with. Then I stamped half the border from the same stamp set in Close to Cocoa on some Teal coloured Bazzill and cut it out with Large Octogons and matted with some Tangerine Tango cut with the Large Scalloped Octogons. I've added some clear large Dew Drops and some light cream 1/2" satin ribbon through the middle. I finished off by adding a large satin bow made from the 1" matching satin ribbon using the Bow-Easy. I have to say I am LOVING this new tool - perfect bows everytime!!! :)

Stamps - Friendship Set (JustRite)

Paper - Bloom & Grow (MME), Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, Teal coloured Bazzill

Ink - Close to Cocoa

Accessories - Large Circle Nestabilities, Small Circle Nestabilities, Large Octogon Nestabilties, Large Scalloped Octogon Nestabilities, Clear Dew Drops, 1/2" Light Cream Satin ribbon, 1" Light Cream Satin Ribbon, Bow-Easy, Foam tape.

Well that's 3 challenges down 5 to go......or until at least tomorrow when more a posted!!! :) That's all for today, thanks for visiting!! :)
