Those two words came to me when I discovered the brand new Twofer Card Challenge introduced by Darnell this month. One image. Two cards. Two totally different designs.
Well, you know I had to try it, right?
Since the prompt word for the challenge is "feathers", I turned to a retired set by Stampin' Up! called Fine Feathers. The peacock feather in the set gave me some ideas.
For the first card I stamped the feather several times in a circle, always touching the sides. Can you see it? There is a little creature that was simply begging to be created. I coloured the stamped areas using my Stampin' Blends, the Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. The little creature really began to come to life. Since I only wanted part of the stamped area to show, I created a tree with a hollow from which he could peek out. Perfect! I'm thinking Owl, but it could be anything.
My next card shows off that wonderful feather in all its coloured glory. I used a mixture of Stampin' Blends and Stampin' Markers for the colours. Bright! And so different from the little creature in the other card.
Now Darnell wants the cards photographed together and so here they are.
I hope you'll go over to the Twofer Card Challenge for a look at all the other creations.
