Dirty Girl Challenges

If you're a member of the Fan Club on SCS, you have access to lots of neat galleries.  One of the them is the Dirty Girls!  I am not sure why they are called that--hopefully because they get so down & dirty while they are stamping.  BTW, Taken with Teal does not come out completely from a pair of tan shorts.....ask me how I know!  Anyway, this week, SCS is having a bunch of challenges thrown down by the Dirty Girls, and we can participate.  I combined three:

  • Clean, Simple White card by Julie
  • Vellum by Laurie
  • Ribbon by Jody

You can see all the challenges here.  (You may not be able to link this unless you are a Fan Club member.  You can find out about that here.)  So here is my card:

07-23-08 challenge dirty girl 2

It is a challenge just to photograph the vellum!! (Can you believe my background is a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock!?)   But it is quite pretty IRL!  The card is WW; I used the lighter weight vellum that SU sells and stamped on the reverse with Boho Backgrounds in Craft White.  You MUST make sure it is all the way dry--I used my heat tool.  The ribbon from Michael's was what drove the other colors--the heart from Always was stamped on the white card base in Mellow Moss; the sentiment from Essential Sentiments (MFT) was stamped on top of the vellum in Always Artichoke.  I didn't have any ink that really matched this ribbon--it is a very pretty, but odd color!  The edges of the vellum were scalloped with the new SU punch; the top of the vellum is adhered under the ribbon.  Here are a couple closer views:

    ...and yes, the Dirty Dozen (or dirty girls) are called that because of the inky fingers. :)

  5. Wow Leanne! This is beautiful! Very Elegant!
    I have to ask (I know this is a silly question, but...) When you use your heat gun to speed up drying...how do you get your velum to NOT ripple? I have this problem everytime and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
