Grapes and an ATC

This is it!!!!!!! This will be the last post of my Dare to Get Dirty cards. I love this stamp by Serendipity Stamps/Grapes. I stamped it in teal and watercolored the grapes, vine, leaves and added some watercolor to the background . It has been a few years since I have watercolored. It is still fun to do.

 My card is for DTGD14CassieT, DTGD14IlinaCrouse, CAS284.

Stamps-Serendipity Stamps/Grapes, Sweet 'n Sassy/Spring Tulips set
Paper-Bazzill Paper Basics/Black, Canson watercolor paper #140 lb.
Stazon-Teal Blue
Accessories-Tombow markers, water, and paint brush

My second card is an ATC card (Artist Trading Card)....the first time I've ever made one. They are really sweet. It is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I don't think I'll be getting into swaps but it would be an interesting hobby.

To show how small it is, I placed the back of the card posted above behind it. The one above is an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) size.
This card was also watercolored.

This card was for:  DTGD14diniB, DTGD14Paperpunchscissors, DTGD14IlinaCrouse

Stamps-Art Impressions/M-3312
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento/Rich Cocoa
Accessories-orange rhinestones, paint brush, water, and markers

I'm kind of taking a rest from stamping for a few days and trying to get some other things done. Not sure if I'll post anything else this week but I'm quite sure you'll see me posting early next week, if not.

A Stencil and Stamps

Another card today for the DTGD challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It was made for these challenges:
DTGD14ChristineCreations, DTGD14bfinlay, DTGD14cathymac, DTGDvdutchr. I did this card using a new technique for me, pointillism. The tutorial can be found here on SCS.  It was my first time to try it and I LOVE it.
