Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
It's time for another Twofer Challenge!
This month's challenge is...
I've used some leaves from a Simon Says Stamp set that a sweet friend
For my first card I used 2 of the stamps, inking them and coloring with
Tombow markers and blending the color with a waterbrush.
I did a card front sized panel then cut this section out leaving an awesome frame
that hopefully you'll see at a later date.
To soften the background a bit, I've added a piece of vellum. It's hard to tell
since it covers the whole card front.
A stacked die cut and some heat embossed strips take care of the sentiment and
I bravely added some splatters.
For my Twofer...
I used one of the leaf stamps from the first card and another from the set to
hold up the birdhouse.
I've inked and colored the leaves in the same way as the first card only using
Fall colors instead. It seemed perfect for a Thanksgiving card.
Always good to have things done early!
We have two Guest Designers this month. Be sure to check out what Alison
and Natalie and our awesome Design Team have done to inspire you.
I hope to see you Twofers in the gallery!
