I've been trying to get decent photos the last several days before writing this blog. Oh well. Here's what I am submitting to Darnell's new gig called Twofer Card Challenge. Her first challenge is to use feathers. Here is my entry:
The "twofer" stamp is an Inkadinkado stamp with a feather and an ink well that I have had for years. I cannot find its name, but I do like it. It is a NBUS to me as I don't think I have used it before. I hope you like it too. Below are the details with some close-ups of my two cards.
I made the sympathy card first using a really pale pink textured cardstock. It looks white in the single photo, but better above. It's probably from Bazzill, but I am not sure as I got it at a craft store that was closing quite a few years ago. A touch of Wink of Stella is in the inkwell center, but it hardly shows. For a bit of bling, I added three enamel dots from my stash to finish the card. It is matted with Stampin' Up! Basic Black and placed on Basic Gray cardstock.
The embossing resist technique was used for my second card. I stamped with VersaMark, dusted with WOW Fine White embossing powder, and heat set it before attacking the background. My goal was to make it look like a night sky. Ranger Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Black Soot were blended with touches of Distress Oxide Salty Ocean for my darkish sky. For the first time I tried to do some splatters to look like tiny stars. Not having any white paint, I used Tsukineko All-Purpose Ink in Frost White. Not too bad, but maybe too many. Used a paint brush for the scattering. Shiny silver cardstock from SU is my mat and Basic Black is the card base. This card was number 3 or 4 as the other ones went into the circular file. Finally done, but I could not miss this challenge. I am not sure which takes longer for me, making cards or writing! I am sure you all understand. 😕
