Just nipping in to share a couple of cards I made for Darnell's Twofer challenge.
I try to join in if I can but I always forget the closing date so I'm making sure I get them in on time this month.
I used my Stamping Bella Bubble Chicks again as the theme is birds and I could turn them into a cheeky set of robins again!
As I was trawling for inspiration for my non altered chicks, I saw a card that used the bubble stamps as a background panel and having just seen the CAS Mix Up challenge was Bokeh, which reminds me of bubbles, I decided to make a panel and then stamp the bubbles on to it.
After stamping, colouring and fussy cutting the chicks, I stamped the other bubbles on the Bokeh panel but they were a little too pale so I added some white Prismacolor pencil to them.
The sentiment reminds me of my eldest Grandson, who always loved bubbles and got very giddy when we had them out!
I must admit that when I first bought this set I was suckered by the cuteness then couldn't think what to do with them! That was until I saw how to convert chicks into robins and penguins at a Copic colouring course last year. I've already made one card with robins and baubles so decided on another, with a couple more robins causing even more havoc!
The background was made by stamping a pine branch from a STAMPlorations set in Mowed Lawn DI and then painting over it with some water then stamping over with Pine Needles DI. The 'robins' were stamped and coloured, then I did a bit of mirror stamping to get a'robin' to face the other way, before fussy cutting birds and baubles and adding them to my card. The greeting is from an unbranded set I picked up at Port Sunlight a couple of years ago and strings were drawn with a fineliner and straight edge. A touch of Wink of Stella was added to the finished baubles for a little extra festiveness, which unfortunately doesn't really show up in the photo.
That's it from me then so have a great weekend, my Grandson's are coming soon so this will be the last bit of me time for a bit!
