Twofer Challenge Cards

Hello everyone!! Today is a snow day here and I thought I would post a couple cards.

Have you heard about the new Twofer Challenge Blog? My Bloggy friend Darnell started it and I decided to join the challenge this month.

The challenge this month was to use feathers as your inspiration.

This weekend I created some backgrounds using some of my Tonic products with a Hero Arts Peacock Stencil to make some backgrounds.

For my first card I also used CASE this Sketch #254 very LOOSELY for my inspiration.

I used Nuvo Pacific Teal Embellishment Mousse with the Hero Arts Stencil. I used a frame I die cut with an MFT die and then emphasized the feather with Stickles and a sequin.

I used WPlus9 Basic Greeting for the sentiment.

For my second card, I used Nuvo Blue Topaz Glimmer Paste with the stencil.

I know peacocks really don't "fly" but I used the PaperTrey Ink "Feather Finery" stamp set for the sentiment. I layered it over a piece of silver thread and some shiny card stock.

I topped it off with a silver bird die cut and some blue sequins.

I thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are all warm and cozy!!! Have a great night!!
