Getting Dirty, again

The Dare to Get Dirty week is half way through, but there's still plenty of time to join in the challenges! Here are few cards I have made for some of the challenges.

This first card was made for Julie's challenge. The challenge was to make a clean and simple white based card. I really like making this type of card. It truly is a challenge, adding the exact right amount of images and embellishments. I used a long rectangle nestability to emboss/deboss (depends how you're looking at it!). I masked that and stamped my images and saying within the rectangle.

This next card was made for Sharon's challenge. It was a similar concept: Stamp Simply. by this she means keeping it clean and pretty, but adding that little extra something that brings about an elegant quality. For this card, I started out with vellum. Vellum always makes me think of elegance. I stamped that with a damask image in white ink. I let that dry a bit, then flipped it over and attached it to a chocolate card base using chocolate coloured brads. I finished it off with some luscious chocolate satin ribbon and a sentiment that was a bit on the script-font side.
I will be working on more of the challenges tomorrow (3 day weekend for me!), so stay tuned. In the mean time, the Dare to Get Dirty challenges can be found HERE for the forum. Check HERE for the gallery.
AND... there are still a few more hours in this week's round of gallery idol (it ends noon at mountain time today). If you would like to support me, check out here and go to the link under Description, and vote for Tashers.
