Feb. DD/DDA challenge

It’s time again for Jami’s DD/DDA challenge and the rules for this month are the following:
Challenge Focus: Stamps Designed by Fellow Dirty Girls. -OR- alternate option – use any fellow Dirty Girl’s gallery creation as an inspiration to semi-CASE something of your own.

Required Element: Spring Color Combo

Restricted Element: NO CuttleBug/Big Shot/Wizard or similar diecut/embossing machines.


OK, so when I sat down last night to make my card (yes, I waited till the last minute…heehee) this was just torture because I had just received my new Cuttlebug embossing folders in the mail! Waaahhhh! That’s my luck! I knew that I wanted to use this stamp of Anna’s….it is one of my favorites! I just love this girl looking up at the humongous flower! And I decided that I also wanted to case a DD. Well………this post should really have been titled “A Bad Case of Zindorf”! LOL. Her creations are just gorgeous! And I failed miserably. 🙁 I tried to case her layout and the gorgeous pink sky that she created here. Isn’t that card just awesome? First I stamped the image and then I stamped it again on 3 post-it notes. Wow- this image is huge! I was pleasantly surprized at the size when I received it! I cut out and masked the girl, flower and leaves. Then I brayered the sky with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. Let’s just say I need a LOT more practice! I don’t know if you can see it, but I stamped a small flower from Anna’s Spring Has Sprung set along the left side of the card base. It matches the main image perfectly!
