Three More DTGD Cards : )

Yikes! These last couple of days have been really busy around here, so I haven't had a chance to post 3 more of my Dare To Get Dirty challenge cards! I think I only have 1 more to make, and I can officially say I participated in all of them : )
This first card was for the create a scene challenge. I used this adorable Artful INKables set-Think Big. I used some dp to create the "wallpaper" and some Chocolate Chip cs for the floor. I ran it through one of my Sizzix embossing plates to create some texture.
My next card was for 5 challenges! 1)Sew on a card 2) Make a shape card other than A2 size 3)Make a project using a song as an inspiration 4)Use an animal on a project 5)Color challenge~Bashful Blue, More Mustard, Real Red. I used this adorable Penny Black image, stamped it twice and cut out one of the flowers and the teddy bear. I used my Circle Nestabilities for the shape.
This last card was for the challenge to use black, white, and red as well as a sketch challenge. I embossed the white squares with my Leafy Branch CB Folder. I stamped the rose from SU Fifth Avenue Floral set with VersaMark onto watercolor paper and heat embossed with white ep. I then sprayed it with water and used my Aquapainter to color it with Real Red. I love the pretty effect this technique gives! I cut it out and popped it up on Dimensionals. I used black Kaiser Pearls in the corners. Well, I'm off to bed, but will definitely be cruising some blogs in the morning since I don't have to run myself ragged tomorrow! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi Kerri
Great looking cards and especially love the litle hedgehog, very cute and great colour combo. My retro punches i brought from my local craft shop all 3 sizes small,medium,large but you can also get them from Hobbyhouse
I love mine and would be lost without them the best buy i have ever purchase as when you cannot find a flower to match then just punch away at your card stock or papers
hope this helps
hugs Debra
