Hey everyone - hope you're having a great week! The Twofer July challenge
was announced today and I had some time this evening to play along. The theme is Garden - yay - I love flowers.
Here's my Twofer:
My common images are the lilies and roses from Hero Arts From the Vault Flowers
. Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years in business (Congrats!!) and has reissued some vintage woodblock images in clear format. First I used a bunch of flowers from the set to create a background. It's been done many times - for a good reason, it's fun!! Here's a closer look (you can tell the light was better when I took this photo...):
Supplies: Paper - DCWV Ms Sparkle green card; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; unknown stripe;
Poptone Black Licorice; Michael's green; My Favorite Things Watercolor Wash
Other - foam tape
For the second card I made a bouquet of colored & cut flowers and bundled them in a wrapper from an old My Monthly Hero kit. Here's a closer look (light was already going - sorry for the shadows):
Supplies: Paper - DCWV Ms Sparkle green & blue card; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;
Paper Studio stripe; Poptone Black Licorice; Michael's green; My Favorite Things watercolor;
Bazzill textured goldenrod; Doodlebug Hello 6x6 dot pattern
Dies - My Favorite Things various Blueprints (retired); Whimsy Doodled Doily (retired);
Other - Copic markers, foam tape
The Happy Bday diecut has been in the UFO box forever! Had to include a photo of the ancient Cuttlebug plate I used to cut it eons ago. I can't even tell you how old the plate is but I've had it a long time. It's the kind with all that white foam under the metal plate. Anyone else have such items in the stash?
Thanks to Darnell and the Twofer crew for a fun challenge! And congrats to Cat for joining the DT over there - just love her cards!! And thanks to you for stopping by!
