C'mon & Take the Dare!

It's here!   The annual week of Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at Splitcoaststampers is here!   

Although each day this week will bring some special new challenges, I'm actually more of a "turtle" stamper .... keep a steady pace, hurry isn't good, "channel the hare" ... you know what I mean.    
  This one is for Dina's challenge, DTGD18dini:    



I could quietly tell you that my fingers were ink-free during the making of this one .... but truth is my style ... even when it's ugly.  Yes ... a few fingers on each hand briefly bore evidence of inky play yesterday from the sponging of piggy's turf, and the splattering of the background.  

BTW ... both the pig pen dirt and the splatters are Distress Oxide - Walnut Stain.  For the splatters I simply wiped ink directly only an acrylic block, then loaded a watercolor brush with water, mixed it up, and splattered from the brush.  


Since the image area was created by masking, masking again, and even a third round of masking for the splatter process, the only true dimension is via the lifted little sentiment banner.  

This darling stamp + sentiment are both from Inky Antics.  It was fun to bring them out for some inky play again! 

Check back very soon for more.   Inky stuff is on a roll here!
