Here's a card for Holly's (Toy) DTGD Challenge...a sketch!
Remember, you'll only be able to view the links to the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges if you're a Fan Club Member. :)
Holly's sketches are so fun and her layers are always spot on. I've admired her for a LOOOOOONG time and learned a lot from looking at her cards in the galleries. She's a sweetheart too! I'm honored to be one of her sample makers today along with the very talented Jodi (kharmagirl)....also someone I've admired for a long time.
The main image oval was cut with my Coluzzle template and the scallop oval was cut with a Nestabilities die. I would have loved to dry emboss the main image oval with the Nestie (I love that about the Nesies!), but at the time I made this card, I didn’t own the plain oval Nestie. I do now!…yay! The scallop oval is up on a layer of dimensionals and the main image is up on a second layer.
I like to finish the inside of my cards (yeah, you know that already, LOL!) for a little something extra. I glued down a white panel and ran a thin strip of the Basic Grey Two Scoops DP along the bottom edge.

I loved Holly’s sketch so much that I made a second card.
The scallop oval is up on dimensionals with the main image on a second layer of dimensionals. The word window sentiment is also up on dimensionals.
The cat and balloons were watercolored with Wasabi, Apricot, Lavender, and Basic Black SU ink.
The inside of the card has a white panel with a thin strip of the Wasabi designer prints paper along the bottom edge.
