Hi there! It's time for the February Twofer Card Challenge and the theme is 'Hearts'! If you're unfamiliar with the Twofer Challenge, the object is to create 2 different designs for 2 different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies...and I LOVE this challenge!
I was inspired by my dear friend and DT Gal Anita to create this card, which is to congratulate a friend who recently earned a Master's degree. I inked several heart balloons with dye inks in rainbow order and lined them up using a border die. I then stamped the sentiment and balloon strings, and that was it!
For this birthday card, I began by stenciling soft blue clouds and green hills for this cute little guy. I used the same MFT heart balloons using patterned papers and embossed the sentiment. The little birthday boy was colored with Copic markers, and if you look closely, I used Copic Various Ink with a textured cloth to create the look of denim on his overalls :)
Here are the 2 cards together:
So, there you have it! I hope everyone has a fun and crafty weekend ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,
