Mark 10: 7-8 "7. 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8. and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. 9. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." (NASB)
And her challenge for us is to use 2 of everything you use to make your one card! (ie. 2 DPs, 2 images, 2 ribbons, you get the point!) I made a card for my mom using some of my all-time favorite stamps by Layers of Color; Backyard Birds & Merci Bouquet. I have to show you an upclose shot of my birds. I love the way these turned out!! I started out coloring his underbelly and part of the wings and tail with a light pink Copic marker. Then, I didn't have any light brown Copics, so I rubbed a cotton swab in my chalk Pastels and rubbed the browns on. Then I experimented by using my colorless Copic blender pen and went over all of it in tiny circles which gave it this cool feathery look! And to add a bit more interest I added some white highlights with my Signo gel pen.
Then to enhance the flowers and leaves I used my white pen & clear stardust gellyroll pen which actually looks gold when the light hits. I also used our challenge this week at KL Stampin N' Scrappin, which is Paper Tole! I stamped both sets of bouquets directly on the green DP and then stamped it again on white and popped it up. Such a fun challenge--I love that look.
Pop on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team made!! Our sponsor this week is Digital Ink Co., who also donated some digi stamps to our DT to use this week, (some super cute ones) so be sure to check those out! Have a wonderful Sunday!! *Ü*
