I created a fusion again this challenge and got out one of my favorite big floral images and did some coloring.
I started with a 3-color blend for the flowers but couldn't get enough contrast so then brought in N2 to add to the shade areas. Once I was finished coloring with Copics, I got out some Prismacolor pencils and deepened the areas of shade and also added a bit of white highlighting.
I fussy-cut around the bottom of the lowest flower and tucked a scalloped border behind the flower. Both these panels were adhered to a matching card base. The sentiment was white-embossed onto vellum and die-cut with a stitched die. To make it stand out more, I added a black die-cut flag behind the flower then glued the vellum on top of the flower. Unfortunately a bit of glue seeped out behind the letters, but by the time I noticed, it was dry and there was nothing I could do. Hopefully the recipient doesn't notice, whoever that may be!
I'm linking this card up to a few challenges: Shopping Our Stash (April Showers bring May Flowers), The Paper Players (CAS Blooms), The Card Concept (Floral Centrepiece - I guess my card is clean and layered) and CAS on Friday (Birthday Card)
