More “Dare to Get Dirty” Cards

I’m still having a great time (despite a seriously crappy end to a good day) making cards for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at SCS. Here are two cards that consist of a few techniques/challenges on each card.

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’ve really enjoyed pulling out some of my dusty chipboard and doing stuff to it! This chipboard is from Maya Road and all of the shapes were already cut out for me, I just had to ink ‘em!


If you click on the photo you may be able to see some of the finer details, but after painting the chipboard with white paint, then spraying with glimmer mist, then rubbing gold paint on the edges I covered everything with Ranger’s Rock Candy Crackle paint. It doesn’t get crunchy like Rock Candy Stickles, but it dries with cracks and you can then ink up the chipboard a little more to enhance the cracks.. It’s pretty awesome.

My second card is polar opposite:


I wanted this to be a lovely, elegant anniversary card that a husband would buy for his wife. I did a cool technique where you run the paper through an embossing folder then stamp (I used a woodgrain background stamp) on the cardstock. Only the raised/embossed portion will get stamped and you are left with this look:
