w&w Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Two Challenge with Shay

w&w_bb2ndb_challengefinal

Hello fellow party goers!  It's Shay here.  I am so excited to bring you my challenge.  To commemorate our 2nd birthday I am following up on my One Challenge from last year.  This year it is the Two Challenge!

>>>CHALLENGE DETAILS<<<

Make a new project using the number 2 or two, two colors, two patterns, two layers, two embellishments, two photos, two words or two stamp sets (and so on)...really anyway to incorporate two into your project!  You can focus on a single option or combine the options (for instance a two layer card using two colors + two embellishments).

>>>MY PROJECTS<<<

Card No. 1

I drew in and then painted in the 2 using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in watered down picked raspberry and outlining it in hickory smoke.  From there I used the circles and the two largest outline circles from Scenery: BIGGER Bang Confetti to create a background using Simon Says Stamp white ink, a pale pink ink and second generation picked raspberry solid circles and the outline in Tim Holtz Distress Ink in hickory smoke.  I stamped the sentiment from The Party in black Versafine ink.  I added sequins in pink and iridescent.  With dimensional foam adhesive I attached the panel to a piece of patterned paper from the Shine collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper. It was all attached to an A2 card base using foam adhesive.

How 2 is used: that is 2 colors: pink + grey/black (white is a freebie) + 2 colors of  sequins + 2 stamp sets + a huge "2".

Card No. 2 (and 3)

I went a different direction here: 2 cards.

I began with a single panel of 4.25 x 5.5 white cardstock.  I stamped a plaid pattern using Scenery: Stripes and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in peacock feathers, twisted citron, mowed lawn, blueprint sketch and hickory smoke.  Remember to ink up with Versamark first so the Distress Ink sticks to it.

Then I cut the panel in half lengthwise.  From there I was able to create 2 cards.  I added a border of navy cardstock under the plaid before attaching the navy and plaid to the A2 card base and stamped the sentiment from A Tree for All Seasons on 2 white A2 card bases one in twisted citron and one in peacock feathers.  I accented each with enamel dots.

How 2 is used: that is 2 cards from a stamped pattern + 2 stamp sets.
