Dare to Get Dirty Challenge Cards - Post 3

Hello again Friends & Followers!  Thank you all so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave such sweet & supportive comments - I read & cherish every single one of them!
     Today I have two more cards I created for the DTGD challenges on SCS; each combined two challenges.  The first uses a set I love from the Kim Hughes Collection by Cornish Heritage Farms (before she created Paper Smooches) called 'The Birds & the Bees':
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I embossed the beehives with white PE on glossy cardstock and then sponged Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip ink over them and wiped them off with a tissue for a speckled effect.  Then I stamped the bees and tiny heart and colored them with Copic markers and popped them up with Pop Its against the background.  I handpainted a little 'Extreme Glitter' acrylic paint (it is REALLY sparkly when it dries!) over the bees' wings and the heart for an extra touch of sparkle, and VOILA!  Card for hubby for next valentine's day is DONE (unless I make something I like better before then)  ;)
      This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
   My second card uses There She Goes Clear Stamps' 'Poultry in Motion' set and Taylored Expressions' 'Ray of Sunshine' cutting plate (which I actually used as a stencil here and sponged summer sun ink over it to create the illusion of rays of sunshine and gave the bottom some style with Martha Stewart's grass border punch:
This card also fulfills the requirements of the following challenges:
     Thanks again for stopping by!  Stay tuned for more DTGD cards to come!

Two really sweet cards! I like how you made the landscape scene for your second card, with the bright yellow of the sun together with that green grass! Your bee hives background looks fabulous, and those bees are too cute!
