Wednesday's "Dirt"

Are you all getting tired of my "Dirty" Challenge cards yet? I know I'm having fun with some of my neglected stamps. Woo hoo!!

Did you know that you can win prizes by participating? Read all about it here (see post #70)

Today I am posting a couple more of my challenge cards. To see todays' challenges, click here.

JustRite Damask

I stamped the Damask with VersaMark on the Cream paper, then embossed with clear embossing powder. After it cooled, I used my Brayer and Black ink to get this look.

Stamps: Damask (Flourishes, LLC), Times New Roman Font kit (JustRite Stampers)
Card Stock: Vintage Cream (PTI), Textured Basic Black
Ink: VersaMark, Adirondack Pitch Black, VersaFine Onyx Black
Accessories: Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Corner Rounder punch, Brayer, 5/8 inch Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Circle Nestabilities, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals


Remembering You

I'm such a fan of Pine's white on Kraft, and thought the Queen Anne's Lace would look pretty stamped this way. For a little extra punch, I also stamped with my VersaFine Vintage Sepia.

Stamps: Queen Anne's Lace, Faith, (Starving Artistamps)
Card Stock: Kraft, White (PaperTrey Ink)
Ink: VersaFine Vintage Sepia, Craft White (SU), VersaFine Onyx Black
Accessories: 3/8 inch white sheer organdy ribbon.


Thanks for stopping by today!!
