TWOFER for this post refers to two cards and two challenges. 

I'm so excited to be able to get this under the line on the last day of the Twofer Challenge! In case it's new to you, we are to make two cards using the same stamps or images for two different occasions. This month was a nautical theme.

 It's a favorite of mine, so here are the two cards I came up with.

One card is a missing you occasion and the other is a birthday card. Both use the stamps and sentiments from the Sunny Studio Oceans of Joy set which has been in my prominent "to use" file all summer.  I think these little guys are adorable! 

Here's a closer look at my favorite of these cards. I created it for the Color Throwdown challenge. 

Thinking these shades were perfect for an ocean I ink blended a background using Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass and Wilted Violet, adding spatters. I also stenciled the rays using Peacock Feathers. 
The images were colored onto Bristol Smooth Card Stock using Zig markers. The glittered enamel star and heart came in my newest card kit. I just had to add some sparkle and also some WOS was added to the whale, octopus, and the balloon. 

Phew! Guess this was a long post! Thanks for hanging with me.
