March Double Duty with Pinkfresh Studio Stamps

It's the 22nd and time for another Double Duty Challenge.  A group of friends invited me to join the fun this year. The concept is to use one stamp set from a specific company each month to create two cards, (Double Duty). 

At least one thing should be the same on both cards. We can use different images and sentiments from the same set. Or we can use the same image two different ways. As an added challenge, one item must be used on both cards, Double Duty yet again.

Posting day is the 22nd - another double!

This month's company is Pinkfresh Studios, a new favorite of mine.  Here are my cards:

The set is called Just a Little Lovely and has a matching die for the floral spray.  

The image is colored with Karin Brush Marker Pro markers and is on Gina K's Heavy Weight Pure Luxury white stock.

The background panel is on watercolor stock, colored with Brushos and then spritzed with Shimmer Mist by A Muse.

This is a picture of the panel drying.

Here's the other card using the same image and sentiment. 

The panel was colored with blending brushes using Magenta Madness ink by Stampin' Up. 

The image was stamped directly onto the tinted panel and then die cut. I used my Castle Arts pencils to color it and framed the panel in black.  Don't look too closely because I had to hand cut the black panel, ha ha!

The last part of double duty on each card are the clear water droplets by Dress My Craft.

Both of these cards have been mailed out to two friends in other parts of the country. Each of them is working very hard at reshaping their life at this time. Hopefully this gives them a smile!

Hop on over to the blogs of my team mates and admire their own Double Duty Cards:




Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness Darlene. Both your cards are beautiful and so different. I like the the bright brilliant colors in the first card. Love how you cut out the image and mounted it on the yellow and green cardstock. It is a fun card. Your second still my heart!!! I absolutely LOVE it. The colors are so soft and pretty and I love the layout and the die cut you used. Your coloring is beautiful on both cards. Amazing job on this challenge Darlene.....♥

Darlene, these cards are absolutely stunning! The coloring, the backgrounds, the designs. WOW! Some of your best work, in my opinion.

It's funny... last month Carol and I used the same stamp set and this month you and I did. Do you suppose Barb and I will next month?
