Double the fun!

My friend Julia's twin girls have just turned 24! I made them each a card, using this week's Mojo Monday sketch.

This one is for Clare:

The image is one of the Tickled Pink Fashionette stamps (their site is down for maintenance so I can't link directly!) The papers were free with a magazine, they have a lovely vintage feel. The sentiment was also a freebie!

The nestie shape is embossed with little hearts, and distressed with Shabby Shutters, and stickled. I used Martha Stewart's doily lace border punch, a Magnolia Doohickey die for the leaf stems, and an EK Success Retro punch for the flowers, which I coloured to match the ones on the bp, then slathered with Glossy Accents. The round stickers are Paperchase (so useful!)

This one is for Sarah:

Except for using Basic Grey 'Origins' papers, slightly different colours and a different TP image, this card is identical! I embossed the nestie shape and swiped a Shabby Shutters ink pad across it, instead of distressing the edges.

I can't find my Promarkers list, but I used Lime Zest, Lime Green, Leaf Green; Tulip Yellow, Mustard and Vanilla.

I'm also entering this at Stampin for the Weekend who want the gorgeous colour combo of lemon and lime.

It's a wet, humid, cloudy night, which is annoying because I wanted to see the eclipse of the moon tonight :(

Have a good evening, all - half the week is done, it's downhill from here!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
