Twofer at Southern Girls Challenge

Hi there, it's time for another challenge at Southern Girls Challenge...

Our theme is Anything Goes.... and we have two sponsors


I chose to use some Altenew products available from Krafters Cart.  Meetu who owns Krafters Cart has a large array of products and I love using a NZ based shop to get my supplies. 

My cards today uses Fabulous Florets, that I got from Krafters Cart, which arrived just after lock-down. I love this set as it has two different sized flowers.   And yes I have two cards to share with you.  Earlier this month, one of Jennifer McGuire's blog post was about Split Card Tricks which is a technique where you do stamping down the middle of a half sheet of card and then cut in into two pieces to make cards.

I used the smaller of the two flowers on the stamp set.  I stamped the flowers and masked them to add the leaves.  I wanted to do some pale flowers so used grey tones to colour the flowers. 

For my first card I added some thin black washi down the left hand side.  I added some splatters with the darkest grey ink (Pure Graphite)  The sentiment is from Sentiment Strips 2 (also purchased from Kraters Cart) and is white embossed on black card.  A few silver sequins finished the card. 

My second card is more CAS - I simply added a sentiment from Hello Gorgeous stamp set and a few black gems.   I mounted the panel onto black card and then added to a white base.  

So from one stamping of three flowers down the centre of the of an A5 panel I got two cards.  I just added an extra flower on each panel to balance the design. 

So come and join us at Southern Girls challenge
