More Splitcoast challenges...

Here are a couple more Splitcoast "Dare to get dirty" challenges.

This first one was a challenge from Leslie Rich to use the "out of the box" technique (where the image extends outside the matted "box"). I like this technique and often forget to use it.

All the stamps for this card are justjohanna. I stamped "spring tree" and then added leaves using the "swirly heart" stamp. Last I stamped the owl "Al" on the branch. Its colored with my Prismacolor markers. The paper is from We are Memory Keepers.

I'm not too in to the big skull craze (even if they do have flourishes!). I wanted a happy Halloween card - so this is what I came up with.





This card was a challenge by Cambria to make a pink card. Any shape, any size, any topic - just needs to be pink.

I snuck in a little green (the felt actually matches better IRL). This card has a flap fold that is held down by a notch cut in only the cardstock layer. The pig is again colored with the Prismacolor markers (still practicing!).


All the stamps here are from The Angel Company - although I think the "Tickled Pink" is retired. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Romani.



I want to say thanks to all the people at Splitcoast that put this on. I'm sure it was a bunch of work - but it was really fun for those of us playing! There are still a few challenges I want to try.

They're all just wonderful. The out-of-box one is probably my favorite but that might be because you used two of my favorite justjohanna stamps!

Great work! I'm so glad you did so many challenges!
