I nearly missed it, but I found Darnell's new Twofer Card Challenge which began with the first challenge on 10 January. The only problem is that in my excitement, I forgot to pay attention to the theme ... Feathers!!! I will have to make another 2 following the theme tomorrow.
I had been trying out making cling film inked backgrounds, for the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge ... and then spotted the wonderful card by Kelly on the Simon Says Stamp blog. Perfect way to use one of my first attempts at the backgrounds ... it was not so successful in having the texture as I used ordinary card stock and didn't scrunch the cling enough.
I didn't photo the first background before I started stamping, but this is the second.
Following Kelly's idea, I was using WPlus9 Kind Soul stamp set. As I still had the stamp loaded in my Tonic Stamping Platform, I stamped a second time once I finished colouring to get a strong black print.
Then, as I needed to make my second card with the same stamp ... loved the blue and kraft colour combination of the Color Throwdown challenge.
And the two together ...
I will also enter this to Diecut Diva's Challenge : Do or Use something new. Making the cling wrap background was new for me.
