Twofer Challenge #13

Hi Everyone,

I am playing again in the Twofer challenge  - the current theme is STARS.

No problem, I have lots of those. Since now stencils are on the allowed list I decided to go with this beautiful Memory Box stencil - if I remember correctly it has never seen the light of day...

For my first card I sprinkled black Brusho pigments onto water color card stock. I got a bunch of backgrounds out of this one and decided to go with this one. Since the white background from the water color paper looked kind of blah I sponged distress inks on top. I also  outlined some of the bigger stars with a fine black pen. Added iridescent tape (with stars, too) and the sentiment (lil' Inkers). In teh end I also added some Stickles.

For my second card I did the same thing.

I used emerald and grey Brushos and used photo paper instead. Again I got a bunch of backgrounds out of this one. The cute dragon is from My Favorite Things, as is the sentiment. 

I hope you liked this!

Happy Twofing!

I know this word is overused, but -- WOW -- your starry backgrounds are fantastic! You're very good with the Brushos. I especially love the green... maybe because it has that cute dragon on it, but I do have a thing for green. Thanks so much for sharing your twofer with us at Twofer!

What rich, luscious backgrounds on these starry delights, Cornelia ... such a great sense of depth and dimension on them both! The first is cool and masculine and I love how the iridescent tape leads to the bold sentiment ... and that little dragon is indeed magical! Happy to have you playing along with us at Twofer ... thank you! Hugs, Anita :)

Your starry galaxies are really sensational, Cornelia, and very versatile for so many occasions. Your first card leaves no doubt that the recipient is a STAR and your fun second card is indeed magical with that flying adorable dragon!! Thank you so much for Twofing in Challenge #13! And good job using that NBUS stencil! Hugs, Darnell
