Happy Friyay everyone!
I stumbled across a new challenge this week – the Twofer challenge. Basically we need to make two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies…. Interesting!
The January challenge theme is ‘feathers’. Perfect opportunity to dust down my Newton’s Birthday Flutter set which I have had in my craft room for YEARS but have never used. Whyever not? It is such a cute set…
Anyway, my first occasion was birthday and I used the cheeky Newton’s sentiment! I coloured all the images with my Twinkling H2Os and then masked them off whilst I blended some distress ink into the background. In hindsight, I really should have coloured the cat orange like my mum’s sweet cat who loves stalking birds!
My second occasion is ‘missing you’. Once again I coloured all the images with my Twinkling H2Os and then masked them off before doing some ink smooshing! I cut the image using a My Favourite Things stax die. When I popped it onto the Kraft card, I felt ‘something’ was missing, so I embossed a frame using a larger die from the set – I really quite like how this turned out.
Anyway, I’m also entering these cards into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (birds of a feather)
Thanks for stopping by!
