Dirty Dozen Challenges!!

I have really gotten into the Dirty Dare 08’ Challenges. In the past two days I have made eight cards for this challenge and that was only for Monday and Tuesday challenges. I have yet to even look at today’s. These challenges have really made me got outside my comfort zone. I used Vellum and water colored oh and I made simple cards using only white cardstock. These are things I rarely do cause they make me a little uncomfortable. I never watercolor I usually color in images with Prima pencils. I really love playing around with vellum and plan to do it more now that I have tried it. I need a lot more practice with water coloring!! And I really like the simple cards using white cardstock. The other challenges where great also making a guy card was fun. I can always use male themed cards. I used the western sets AGAIN cause they just make the best guy cards. The other challenge was to make ribbon your focal point and that was easy for me because I have boat loads of ribbon. Can’t wait to try our the rest of the challenges. I also use Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch and this weeks SC sketch challenge.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day!!!

What a treat to see all of your creations! I really really like the very first card. I think it's the simplicity of the design. I just may have to case this one. Thanks for the inspiration!
