It Takes Two

I'm very excited about the new Twofer Challenge  - this one's right up my street and as soon as I heard of it I knew I'd be taking part.


The stamp I chose is a Bo Bunny feather stamp with text on it.

My first card:



Here I used an A Day for Daisies clear stamp , stamped in dark blue and coloured with a single blue Promarker. I traced the feather stamp , and another feather from the same set , in Silhouette Studio and digitally die cut them, then stamped onto the die cut and coloured then with the same Promarker. 

The sentiment was just one that was on my desk (from a Woodware set, I think) and I thought it went nicely with the image. I think it could work for a birthday card but also for some other special event like a woman's graduation day , for example. 

Finally I added Nuvo drops and then shimmer pen to the birds and some of the feathers. 

As well as Twofers, I'd also like to enter this into: 
Make My Monday  blue and white 
Cardmania monochromatic 


For my second card I stamped the lantern (from a different Bo Bunny set) and then stamped the feather inside. I coloured them with water and Lindy's Magicals, which are a powder paint like Brushos but with a shimmer. I cut them out and put them onto a stencilled cardbase and stamped 'thank you'. Then I doodled strings and a frame. 

I'd also like to enter this into:

Time Out  thankful

  6. I like both your cards Marina but that first one is really beautiful in just the blue, its so simple and yet stunning at the same time. I think the sentiment on it is beautiful and fits the image so well x

  7. This is inspiring, how to use the same stamp in such different ways and creating totally different looks. Well done! Going to try and make time to join Twofers myself.

  11. Two stunningly beautiful "twofer" cards Marina. Looks like you totally embraced the challenge. I like them both equally. Your blue girl and feathers is a really nice layout and I like the mono colouring. Thanks so much for joining us for the Watercooler Wednesday Occasions challenge this week and sharing your wonderful cards.

  13. Two wonderful feather cards Marina. The first is so lovely and CAS with just a little colour and lots of white space, the second is bold with the pretty stenciled background and vibrant coloured lanterns. Great way to use your feather stamps in totally different designs! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge.

  24. Hi Marina, what an amazing couple of cards you've created for your "twofer". The feather does double duty beautifully. Love the blue and white of your first card. The tiny birds circling the pretty image of the young lady lead into the arc of feathers perfectly. Love the details of the feathers and the care you've taken to add so much detail to them. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
