Delighted to have been asked to be Guest Designer for the Twofer Challenge this month - the prompt word is 'Flowers'.
For those who are wondering about 'Twofer' - you have to make two cards for different occasions using the same stamps/dies/stencils. It certainly makes you think!
I used a NBUS stamp set, Penny Black Dahlias. Have had it a while and thought this was a good opportunity to let the set see ink!
First card uses white heat embossing of the largest stamp in the set.
I smooshed the background with Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac.
I sometimes don't like the effect I get just inking direct onto my craft mat so I used Acetate instead - that way you can have a little control over the distribution of colours and see if they are too much.
Originally I was going to simply heat emboss the sentiment direct to the inked piece but changed my mind and went for the vellum instead. A couple of pink enamel dots and done.
The second card was a little bit more complicated time wise as it
involved a lot of masking and stamping.
Gold embossed this one and watercoloured it - used the same biggest stamp and a couple of smaller ones.
I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey for the flowers and gave the background a very light colour wash of Tumbled Glass and a few ink spatters in Amber before gold embossing the sentiment.
Popped it onto a die cut square and used hammered cardstock for a bit of added texture.
Here's a pic below of the two cards together and the challenge runs until 24th of the month.
Thanks to Darnell and the team at Twofer for inviting me to be Guest Designer this month and thanks to you for looking today.
