Dare 2B Artzy Day

I found some fun challenges to play in using Dare 2B Artzy images!  I really look forward to Fridays!  Besides having 2 days off, I get to play in other challenges~

For this card, I used D2BA, Retro Pattern 1.  I am entering this into the following challenges;
Paper Crafting #15; use kraft, Shopping Our Stash; triple threat - I used twine [ribbon], pearls, and die cuts, and lastly, Nacho #100.  I chose the color challenge #20; Navy, Baja Breeze and Summer Starfruit.


While I was reading the challenges, I came across CASology #106 - rainbow.  What a fabulous trend hitting the waves of blogland -- I had to join in ~  Thinking about it, this might not be CAS enough, but I am entering it anyway...

I used the D2BA stamp sets; Life is Good and Butterfly Kisses.
For this card I did the "pouncing" again. [Alcohol ink up your Alcohol Ink pad on the applicator tool, and pounce it around on your paper]  This time I tried it on water color paper -- well, not as good as the shiny paper, but after I added more Blending Solution directly to the paper, I like the effect.
I tried something -- let's see if it worked

Akkkkk!!!!! A video - a crappy video, but you get the drift of pouncing~ LOL



Thanks for stopping by~

Wow Vicki two gorgeous backgrounds. I love that design and colors on the first especially. So cool. Those flowers are so gorgeous.

These are both soooo beautiful, Vicki!!
On the first one I really like the lovely graphic feel and the bg paper is just so great with the other colours - I love the kraft and the mustardy colour together with the blues and white - very striking!!! The sweet little flowers and the twine bow balances so nicely and the sentiment looks great!! Love the pearls to round off the flowers! I really like this card!!
On the second card again I like your selection of bg paper on the white base and the black frame around the stunning centre piece looks great!!! Great, great, great colours and the flower stamp looks so beautiful with the sentiment and the 3 sequence to round it off!! Beautiful creation!!

Have a lovely day!!!
