so I'm heading over to the Twofer challenge with these
Here's my 'Onefer' which also uses the sentiment that comes in the set. I used a Sakura glitter pen on the hearts and Dovecraft punch for the border.
here's a close up but it still doesn't show the glitter!
This one's heading over to the following challenges
Allsorts challenge 'love is in the air' (my second entry)
AAA Cards challenge 'all you need is love'
So now for my 'Twofer' - again I wasn't too impressed with my first card and thought about maybe embossing the butterflies to give them a bit more ooomph as I'd originally planned on making an anniversary card, but that still didn't fill me with any enthusiasm.
At this stage I had come to the conclusion that I wasn't going to be able to get this stamp to work for me so next step was to change course completely and I started by stamping on a snippet of card, colouring with Promarkers and then cutting out the wings to see what they looked like. Mmmm..... out came the Sakura pen again to give the hearts a bit of glitter and I thought I may as well carry on and see where this would lead me. Next I stamped onto some more card and coloured again using Promarkers and the glitter pen and then attached the wings, so far not looking too bad but still lacking something and then I had that 'eureka' moment and realised that butterflies need flowers - so another PB stamp 'Jubilance' came to the rescue and I added a few flowers with Stickles centres along the bottom. Finally I stamped a PB birthday sentiment and then matted it onto some coloured card and a deckled edge card base. I much prefer my 'Twofer' so I've decided to hang on to this stamp for a while longer to see if I can find a bit of inspiration and give it a bit more love.
again, here's another close up but it still doesn't show the glitter and Stickles!
and this one's heading over to the following challenges
Penny Black and More challenge 'love, hearts and / or flowers'
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'anything goes + option use some scraps'
Country View challenge 'anything but cute'
Thanks for taking the time to pop by on this cold wet and miserable day (well that's what it's like here) and for taking the time to leave me a comment.
