It’s time for the Split Coast Stamper’s Dirty Dozen Present & Alumni monthly challenge. This months challenge was to make a birthday card using numbers in the design and not use the word Birthday.
This is what I came up with for my husband Russ’ birthday in October. Good thing he doesn’t read this blog, lol.
To see all of the Dirty Girl’s creations for this challenge check out this link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?si=DCB808&x=8&y=8
The Dirty Girls will be posting their creations throughout the day, so check back at that link often.
Here is the tutorial for mine:

|Accessories: Brayer, Versamark marker, Fine Detail Clear embossing powder, Heat Gun, Cuttlebug numbers, Prismacolor Markers, White gel Pen, Black fine tip marker, Sponge, Ticket corner punch, photo Corner punch, Post it notes|
Stamped Fisherman on a 5″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White card stock with Palette Noir Black ink.
Colored his hat and pants with a Prismacolor Oatmeal marker.
Added Khaki to his jacket and the creases on his pants.
Colored his skin with an Eggshell marker.
Colored over the fisherman with a Versamark marker and heat embossed the image with fine detail clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Put a post it note over the bottom of the card-stock to mask it and then Brayered on Apricot Appeal ink.
Brayered on Baja Breeze ink at the top of the sky.
Brayered on Not Quite Navy ink at the top of the card stock not covering the Baja Breeze ink entirely.
Removed post it note mask.
Put a clean Post it note mask on to cover the sky area of the card stock.
Brayered on Baja Breeze ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Brayered on Not Quite Navy ink at the top of the water area, by rolling over the post it note.
Colored in just the hook of the lure stamp with a black marker. Huffed on it to moisten the ink and stamped it.
Cut the numbers 47 from a piece of Kiwi Kiss card stock with my Cuttlebug.
Glued the numbers on so they look like they are on the hook.
Extended the fishing line to reach the hook with a fine point black marker.
Colored the trees with a Prismacolor light Olive Green marker.
Made dashes in the water with a white gel pen.
With the fine tip end of a Prismacolor Light Olive Green maker, made a shadow on the right sides of the “47″. Did this to create depth.
Sponged Night of Navy ink around the outside edge of the panel.
Used a ticket corner punch on the main image panel and the Apricot Appeal panel.
Punched 4 corner punches from Baja Breeze card stock and adhered them to a 5.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Night of Navy card stock.
Assembled the rest of the card front.
Here is it finished measuring 5.5″ x 5.5″.
I challenge you to make a creation today using numbers. If you accept this challenge, please leave a link to your card in the comment section of this post. I would love to see them!
May your day be filled with cool lake breezes.
Until my next post. . . . . . . . .
