Newton’s Feathers

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!

  3. I have to admit I was worried you didn’t use feathers when I saw your cards in the gallery, Lucie! I had no idea that adorable cat was spitting out feathers until I came here and enlarged the photos to see! What a fun image and good for you using your NBUS!! They are both great designs; I really like how you added interest and dimension by embossing the larger frame!! Creative thinking!! Thank you so much for stumbling across and playing in my new Twofer Card Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. What a cute little Stamp, and wonderful that you thought to use it for the feathers. That is thinking outside the box and perfect for the two occasions. Love your coloring.
