A few more "dirty" challenges

I did a few more challenges for the "Dare to Get Dirty" event at SCS.

This one was for Sharon/notimetostamp's challenge. I used gel-a-tins Wild Things, as well as the Houndstooth background, and one of the sayings from the new level 1 hostess set So Many Sayings. Because that set comes with 36 different sayings and images, but only 3 blocks, I went unmounted. I actually peeled the rubber away from the foam. Then, cut out the sayings really tightly. I left them unattached to foam. I will just use them with double-sided tape and an acrylic block. To make sure I don't lose any, I put three long strips of double-sided tape in the box they came in, and stuck them there. My colour scheme is burgundy, artichoke, and vanilla.

This card was created for Beate's sketch challenge. It gave me an excuse to use some more of the new sets! The definition is from Define Your Life and the gift is from Holiday Blitz. The letters are from gel-a-tins 1" and 1/2" Roman letters. I also used the Polka Dot background and did a little bit of ghosting (the gifts) and some doodling (the squiggles). I used the colours Wasabi, Pomegranate, and Guava.
