Dare to Get Dirty with Me!

Today is another sample from me for the Fan Club Dare to Get Dirty Challenges :) This one is for the DTGDblondie090277 Challenge - that's right! I'm hosting and this is your Paper Tole challenge! Muahahahaha! You knew coming from me that it wouldn't be so easy peasy didn't you? *insert wicked grin here*

For the image, I heat embossed the dalia with gold embossing powders and then watercoloured all the layers with my Tombow Markers and Aqua Painter. I wanted to fit in the coordinating sentiment from my Summer Blooms Dahlia set, so I went on the hunt for the perfect layout. I used last week's sketch challenge from my good friend Wendy's new challenge blog called Delightful Sketches and my paper toled dahlia fit beautifully as the center piece. :)

Don't forget to pop into the Fan Club Challenge Forum to see all of the day's challenges. They will be posted every hour from July 23-25th with a different hostesses and tons of fabulous samples :) I can't wait to see all of your paper tole creations *wink*
