Hello everyone ~
I'm sliding in at the last minute, but couldn't resist playing along in Darnell's brand new challenge called 'Twofers'! The challenge is to make two different cards with the same stamp for two different occasions and according to the challenge theme (feathers). With a stellar DT, I think this is going to be a really fun challenge, and I can't wait to see more of their ideas throughout the year! I love everything about this challenge...Count me in!!!
I used PTI's Swan'sational stamp set for both cards, starting with ink blending and splattering to create the look of water on the first card.
I also used PTI's Soft Stone ink for the swans and refrained from adding details on their beaks. I clear embossed the shapes for the pond water and added a double slanted banner for the sentiment!
Card #2 ~ Well, it is a 'Twofer', right?
I love how you get a heart shape when you place the swans facing each other...so of course, I created a wedding card! I also embossed the pond water with white EP, but it's hard to see in the photo...let's see if this helps:
A little better, I guess...it looks really pretty in person, so that's that :)
I would like to take the time to wish Darnell and her amazing team much success with their new Twofer Challenge! I know it's going to be lots of fun, and I plan to play along in all future challenges!
