For Him and Her

Hi there,

This month’s swap theme is “For Him and Her”.    The rules for this swap are:

  • Create two cards to send to your swap partner – one male card and one female card – using the same style card, dies or stamps for both
  • You can use different coloured card stock

I decided to revert to my favourite technique for these cards…Retiform.

Darkroom Door Seashells, Seaside Volume 2

For Him

Darkroom Door Seashells, Seaside Volume 2

For Her

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac and Broken China, Memento: Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Lavender, blue, black and white
Stamps:  Darkroom Door Seashells, Seaside Volume 2, Simple Sayings
Other: Double sided tape, Post-it Notes

For each card, I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock, coloured using the Retiform technique,using Salty Ocean and Broken China “For Him” and Shaded Lilac and Salty Ocean “For Her”.

Once coloured, I stamped the images, and sponged around the edges. Once finished, I adhered each onto a black mat which was then adhered to the card base, using double-sided tape, lavender card base “For Her” and blue card base “For Him”.

Bye for now,
