Wacky Wednesday and The Dirty Dozen / Alumni Challenge

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and you know what that's time for another Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday!!! The hostess this week is Candy and her challenge is to use inchies!! I decided to use the Rubbernecker Birthday Borders set...I just love these little cupcakes!! The cupcake border was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, cut into inch squares and attached to the matting. The greeting banner was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and attached with glue dots at intervals to create the wave.

Piercing, pearls, and gingham ribbon finishes it off. The closeup shows the wave in the banner.
The Stampin Up! scalloped border punch was used on the bottom edge.

Dirty Dozen /Alumni Monthly Challenge

This months Dirty Dozen/Alumni Challenge is to create a project that has something to do with water. It can be in the stamps, paper, or embellishments. We are to celebrate the happiness of warm weather and warm water. The only requirements are that we are to use watercoloring somewhere on the card and we can only use two embellishments...yikes!!!

I decided to use this gorgeous stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs called Foot Prints in the Sand. The image was stamped on different shades of Prism paper three times. The top two layers were cutout with Nesties to line up with the bottom layer so the entire image can be read as if there were no layers...I hope that makes sense!! The foot prints and the water at the top were watercolored with Tempting Turquoise.

The Rubbernecker Shells were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto the Prism papers, cutout, and attached with dimensionals.

My two embellishments are the May Arts Ribbon and the brown pearls.

Stamps: ODBD and Rubbernecker
Paper: Prism Iced Teal, Frosted Teal, Vibrant Teal, Suede Brown Dark
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: May Arts Ribbon, Brown Pearls, Dimensionals, Nestabilities

Thanks so much for visiting ....have a great day!!!!
