Numbers at Twofers

It's the first Saturday of the month and that means we have a new challenge at Twofers. This time we would like to see NUMBERS (or A number!) feature on your work. Don't forget that you must include some stamping, and that is real stamping using rubber or clear stamps (or woodblocks, or carved vegetables!), not digi stamps or images from CDs.

And just to clear up any confusion, despite our name, you don't have to make two items, one is plenty. Although if you want to make two, or even more, we won't stop you!

I've used a Paper Artsy stamp for my card - it looks as if it was originally intended for making ATCs with as it is exactly ATC sized. For the black stripe, I stamped it twice in Versamark ink and then brushed it with a green metallic pigment powder and fixed it with a tiny spritz of water. For the topper, I used a Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Thick Enamel powder to emboss three layers on an ATC sized piece of heavy card, then stamped the image into it with black Staz-on ink.

As I didn't have a suitable sentiment stamp, I created one using a Dymo label maker. I'd intended to put it horizontally but when I tried the placement, it looked too, well, straight, so I fiddled about with it until I found a jaunty angle I was happy with.

If I send this card through the post, I will protect the enamelling with a layer of bubble wrap - it is well known for being prone to cracking in the post!

Do please pop over to Twofers to see what Zoe and Christi have made, and to share your own numbers creation with us!

I really like the contrasts of light and dark in this card, which are set off by the metallic elements. Great work!
