Split in Two

Sunday Stamps has a sketch challenge and Just us Girls has a word of the week and I was able to make a card that fits both these challenges.

Just Us Girls # 530 Word Week

This past few days I’ve been playing a lot with inks and embossing and as I really like this folder I had a panel already to go on my desk. I decided to swipe 2 ink pads over it very lightly and used Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron. The green changed colour as I forgot to wait for the other ink to dry but I quite liked it so am using it anyway. I cut the piece into 2 and adhered both to a GKD Fresh Asparagus card front. Using some scrap card I die cut the scalloped circle and stamped the feathers in same inks with a sentiment in the middle. Used a small star stamp and a florish in gold ink as well. Stamp set from Hot of the Press called Feathers and Florishes. Probably one of my very first clear stamp sets so it is old. I had the gold die cut and embossed feathers on my desk already and using elastic gold cord I tied them together finishing with a small bow. Glued the circle and then added the feathers and a few sequins for some bling. I really like this particular sentiment and have used it often in the past, it kind of fits the crisis we are facing at the moment.

  1. Been playing since earlier today but had lots of interruptions. Have another one that should work for JUS as well but no time to load it now. Prefer this one of the two anyway. Glad you like it.


  2. Johanna, this is fantastic. I love your background, fun way to do the sentiment, and those pretty feathers. I love that you were able to get a bow out of elastic cord, too.

    1. Thanks Golda – I had fun with this one but had no idea at all when I began. it kind of evolved along the way


    1. I can’t remember where that folder came from but seem to remember it being given to me by someone. I like it a lot and as it was on my desk from another project, before I put it away I did the white panel and then left it for a day. When it came time for the challenge decided to use that piece and see what I could come up with.


  3. What a fun technique – love the swipe over the emboss! Great color choices – purples and greens together are my all-time fave, lol. Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  4. Thanks – Like you I love purples in any shape or form and find it easy to use with many colours not just green.


  5. I have always been a fan of this type of layout. Your card is really beautiful. What a good message for all of us right about now! Thanks for playing along with the girls and I at JUGS!
