Hello and thank you so much visiting me. Today I am entering the wonderful Darnell's fabulous new Twofer Card Challenge. You have two make two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies. The theme for this first challenge is 'feathers'. I have used the same feather stamp on both cards.
The card on the left is a 'sending smiles' card to cheer someone up whether they are ill or just going through a tough time. The mouse is from a wooden Penny Black Christmas stamp called Xmouse Ornament - the mouse on the stamp is drifting down on a snowflake which I covered up with masking tape, inked up, removed the masking tape then stamped and embossed with clear powder. Then using my Misti and the feather stamp from Sheena Douglas stamp set The Quest - I stamped and embossed the feather so it joined the piece of string I had left from the snowflake and embossed that too. What would we do without the Misti! The sparkles are from Winnie and Walter Big Bang Confetti and the words are from Lawn Fawn Love Letters stamp set.. I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut out with Spellbinders Labels 4 and edged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
For the card on the right I used the same feather stamp, repeatedly stamping with Vintage Sepia Versafine to make a nest for the two little birds. The birds are from HobbyArt Birds on a Wire which I stamped in Black Versafine and embossed with clear powder, fussy cut out, coloured with Promarkers then edged with black and sat on the nest. It was going to be a new home card but I changed my mind and decided to add the punched heart and make an anniversary card instead! The sentiment is HobbyArt too. The gorgeous die is Spelbinders Romantic Rectangles Two.
I added some clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to each of the cards for a bit of sparrkle.
I should have taken photos of each card separately so you could see the detail better but I didn't think of that! Sorry. I will next time. I want to link up tonight and haven't time to sort out more photos.
This Twofer Card Challenge really makes you think - thank you Darnell, a fabulous challenge!
Thank you again for visiting me and I hope you have a fantastic week.
Take care. Christine xxx
