Getting "Dirty" on Tuesday

Hello on Tuesday!! It's another Dare to get Dirty challenge day, and these cards are for that. Here's the link to check out todays' challenges. Fun, fun stuff!!

I made this card for my nephew, and used my JustRite Stampers to personalize it. He is at that age between teen and adult, so I thought I would play it safe and choose some masculine colored papers with this simple design. Here's the front:


And here's the inside:

I used the smaller letters from the same kit to create "Happy Birthday". I hope Christian doesn't think it's too boring. ;)

Stamps: JustRite C-45 Monogram Stamp Box, Special Occasions Font
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Going Gray, GP White, Boxer (BasicGrey)
Ink: Black forn the C-45 kit, VersaFine Onyx Black
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Stampin' Dimensionals


This card is a simple, single layer card that is water-colored with my Aquapainter and re-inkers. My Aquapainter was releasing too much water, so the coloring isn't so nice. It's a sweet little birdie card anyhow, and who doesn't appreciate those?


Stamps: Nature Set (A Muse-clear)
Card Stock: Naturals White
Ink: Palette Noir, Berry Sorbet (PTI)--Reinkers: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Summer Sun
Accessories: blue sheer ribbon (A Muse), Rain Dot, Aqua Painter, ¾ inch Circle punch


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you're having a nice week so far!!

Even with your so-called AP malfunction, the birdie card looks perfect. Great cards once again Rose Ann!

Both of these are awesome Rose Ann! "so the coloring isn't so nice"....SCOFF! Not true! It has the perfect touches of color!

Rose Ann, your nephew will probably appreciate that you thought him adult enough for this card. It's very nice--mature and masculine and just the sort of thing a guy seems to like. Now, about that tree and birdie--I LOVE it! I'm so drawn to an image like this on a clean, white card front. I've never been able to pull it off and have it look right but your card is perfect!

I LOVE that birdie card! There's just something about simple and clean that just gets my attention. And if you hadn't mentioned the aquapainter problem, we'd never notice. The coloring looks great.
