This month I am thrilled to be Guest Designer for Twofer Card Challenge #18.
Thank you Darnell for hosting this terrific challenge, I love joining in each month and why not make two cards while you have the stamps out. So I'm challenging you to 'have a go' as an Aussie would say and join in too, with this months theme - GARDEN.....and isn't that open for lots of interpretation....
So I've chosen a TROPICAL GARDEN as we live in tropical north Queensland
and my cards represent the lush greens and colours in my garden, that's one of my Hibiscus flowers in my blog header.
My Twofer stamp is the Hibiscus flower.... and on my first card I stamped the image five times, coloured the flowers with watercolour pencils and fussy cut them out. I also stamped some greenery and fussy cut them and also a tiny sparkly butterfly - iridescent blue like those we have here.
Next I die cut a stitched circle from a white panel and positioned a blues smooched background behind it and then attached these to a blue card. To finish I arranged my flowers and stamped my sentiment on a scrap of smooched card and attached these with foam tape.
With my second card I randomly stamped and masked two different leaves and my Hibiscus flower on white card and also coloured the images with watercolour pencils. Then I lightly penciled in the blue background, added black card to give a fine frame onto a teal greencard. To finish I stamped my sentiment and used a circle die to cut around it and then a larger black circle and attached this with foam tape.
I am also playing along with the challenge at Double 'D' - Tropical.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making
