Hi! It's time for a new challenge from the Fusion team and this week I chose to play with the photo to come up with this card.

It was Father's Day here in New Zealand earlier in the month and I came up with this card for my dad:

I sort of got my sketch orientation mixed up but I hope you can see the sketch in my card. If you're observant, you'll probably see that I used the same stamp set as last week's card. I stamped a few different colors of these flowers at the time so this card was pretty easy to put together. The card base is Eggplant as is the tag, and onto the tag I added a patterned paper to tie in with the leaves. The sentiment is white heat-embossed and I finished with some Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll check out the wonderful cards made by the rest of the DT.

Welcome to the newest Fusion challenge. I went very literal with this challenge and created a yellow door!
These images all come from a stamp set by WPlus 9 and I added some scored lines to the pale gray card base to mimic linear boards.
My Copic coloring is terribly rusty as I haven't done any for weeks, but it is what it is!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

I created a negative space using a rectangle die and backed it with watercolour wash patterned paper. The flower is from a new-to-me set. It’s a multi-step set and the leaves aren’t meant to be fully coloured but I took to them with a Copic markers to finish them off.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll check out the wonderful cards made by the rest of the design team.

Hi and welcome! It's my turn to host over at Freshly Made Sketches and as I like to do, I came up with a simple yet versatile sketch. Here's the card I made with it:
Gotta say up front, this is not a favourite card. I now regret adding the black ring frames behind the poppy images, but it was too late to remove them after I decided I didn't like them. They were stuck down good!
The rectangular panel was created with a stencil and Versamark ink. Once I had the rectangle inked up I added some embossing powder mixed with texture powder to create a dimensional rough surface.
The flowers were stamped using a new-to-me stamp set from The Ton. As I said I wish I hadn't used the black frames, but it is what it is.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you'll check out the blog to see what the rest of the DT have done with my sketch.

Thanks for dropping in! I'm here with my card for the latest Fusion challenge, where I created a fusion of both photo and sketch.
I tried to re-create the gorgeous colors from the photo using Distress Oxide inks and stencils. After I'd finished, I die-cut a half circle and adhered it to a white side-folding card base. I added the white-embosses sentiment.
I used an off-cut from the stenciled panel for the background of the dragonfly and then I used black glossy cardstock for the top layer. I finished with some sequins in similar colors.
Thanks for visiting! The DT have some gorgeous cards, so I hope you'll check them out.
