Twofer Card Challenge

There's a new challenge blog just gone live called Twofer, the aim is to make two cards using the same stamps, dies etc to make two cards for different occasions. The first is Feathers, these can be attached to a bird on their own or incorporated in something. The cards below are what I came up with for the challenge. I used a stamp from a set of stamps called Peacock Glory from Chocolate Baroque and the sentiments are from a set called Mackintosh Sentiments again from Chocolate Baroque. The backgrounds were created using distress inks and a couple of texture stamps from Visible Image.

On the card below I used a stencil  on the background but can't remember who it was by as it's been in my stash so long. 

The stencil used on the card below is from Imagination crafts.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

What a glorious colour of turquoise Sue - and those feather are marvellous! Wonderful cards for a tricky challenge - I needed to lie down after I'd made my two! Ha, of course, the turquoise is peacock blue - silly me :)
