Let's Get Dirty!!! Kimmie's Challenge #5!!


This weekend was a BUSY one for me!! I've been preparing for it all last week!! I had a workshop out of town on Friday night and there were 22 women, each doing 5 different projects!! And on Saturday, I had a workshop in town for 12 women. It was a lot of fun, but a LOT of work and I was so glad to be able to chill on Sunday!!!

Well, I've missed a couple of weeks worth of challenges, what with the Pink Cat Studio Contest and all the busyness around here, but we're back in the swing of things and I've got a great challenge for you today!!!!

I've been having SO much fun playing with my Magnolia stamps, I just can't STAND it!! This little guy is Edwin Fishing and I also used the matching Fishie stamps on this card!! I started out with the sketch from Jen Del Muro's blog this week. I knew that I wanted to use mostly blues and greens for this card so I pulled out my Tres Jolies Bonjour papers. I stamped Edwin on watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured him in using my Prismacolour pencils and OMS. I stamped the fishies separately, coloured them and cut them out. I covered their scales in Turquoise Stickles and I painted Edwin's wings in Icicle Stickles. The sentiment is an A Muse stamp that I punched out using my Round Tab Punch. The square card base is Close to Cocoa and I added some brown linen thread and pop dotted the main image AND all those little fishies!!

Now here's where your challenge comes in......I used a cosmetic sponge and Walnut Stain ink by Ranger to distress EVERYTHING!! I wanted it to have that dirty, distressed look. So the card you make for this week's challenge has to be 'dirty'!!!

When you make your creation, be sure to link me up in the comments in THIS posting. If you upload your card to the Splitcoaststampers gallery, be sure to use the keyword KC5, so we can all find them!! The deadline to enter the challenge is Sunday, November 11th at noon EST. I will post the winner next Monday!!

Don't forget that my friend Phebe carries Magnolia stamps in her store and would be happy to help you get some....*giggle*! I LOVE to share my addictions.....hehem, I mean PASSIONS with you all!!

WOW...what an adorable little guy...and those fish are WONDERFUL. I love your challenge and will definitely be playing! Question for you...is that pink polkadot paper on the side folded up like a ribbon or is it torn to look folded? (LOVE IT)

This was so much fun. I always distress, it was one of the first techniques that I ever learned. I distress to de-stress LOL. Thanks for hosting yet another fun challenge.
