UnstampaBelles Challenge: Dare to Get Dirty

This is a very fun challenge this month over at the UnstampaBelles Challenge :-)  You can get creative and get messy while documenting the process!  For my take on this month's challenge, I inked up a piece of transparency paper, dabbed it with water and then flipped it over to transfer it to a piece of white card stock.  I then trimmed up the sheet and used it in two pieces on this "Celebrate" card.

Being that it is UnstampaBelles, no stamps were used!  My images are stickers and my sentiment is a rub on.  Here are the pics of my "dirty" process :-)

Getting out the ink pads.

Inking and transferring from the transparency onto the card stock.

Adding a little more color...why not!

Mixing the green ink with water for a new look.

Adding that to the previous inked page.

Cut up and used for background design.  Now my little bee and flowers have a colorful place to play :-)

Please stop by the UnstampaBelles Challenge to see what other wonderful creative projects the designers have to show you, and please, jump in on the fun and show us how you Dare to Get Dirty (and stamps)!!


  1. Lovely card, Sarah!

    P.S. I haven't commented on them much but I'm loving all the photos you've posted! You are an awesome photographer!

  2. Sarah, this is simply gorgeous! Love the way you achieved this background and your tutorial is fabulous. The card itself looks so sophisticated and expensive! Thanks for creating this for us.
