I'm very excited to be joining the first ever Twofer Card Challenge founded by the fabulous Darnell whose card making, personality and writing skills I highly admire! I was definitely in need for something to spark my creativity after all the Christmas card making and this new challenge was just what I needed -slightly demanding but a lot of fun! Thank you Darnell! The goal of each challenge is to make 2 cards for different occasions using the same stamp/die following the monthly theme -in January the theme is Feathers.
Let's have a closer look of the cards I created!
Card 1 (above)
Let's Celebrate, we deserve a party!
I've created the background myself: I sponged white pigment ink through a STAMPlorations stencil on black card and finished the background with white and gold paint splatters. The pattern of the stencil made me think of art deco style and partying flapper girls with feathers in their hair!
Card 2 (below)
This card has a very different look and the Finnish sentiment wishes for happy retirement days. I used nature themed patterned paper and picked the neutral color for the card base and second feather from the paper. With this card I'd also like to join Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Patterned Paper and Pixie's Crafty Workshop: Weeks 315 & 316. It's my first time playing at Pixie's Crafty Workshop too so this post has many firsts! My feathers and the piece of vellum are all created from snippets + the white scalloped rectangle has some faulty stamping in the middle and I was able to save the piece in this project, yay! :)
Thanks for popping by and I hope you like these two different cards made with one same feather die!
