Welcome! This is the first of two posts today. It's time for another Fusion challenge and this time I've gone for a red, white and blue color scheme (or flowers if you prefer) and a fun sketch.
I made this card last weekend using the colors and the (flipped) sketch, thinking I would add it to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. But I got my dates wrong. Even though it's Friday here in New Zealand, and the challenge opens on Friday, it's not Friday in the US :( So, I'll just have to try and make another card for the Blog Hop :)
I just love this image from Art Impressions and colored this old girl in the challenge colors. The sentiment cracks me up as well. I used a white card base and a navy blue pierced frame popped up on foam. I fussy-cut the chicken and added her with foam too.
Unbeknownst to me, when I pulled the stamp off the packaging to use for the first time, I left a bit of her claw behind. Luckily, the sketchy nature of the stamp means it's not too noticeable - in fact I didn't notice until I put the stamp away again and saw the claw still on the packaging!
Thanks for dropping by! The rest of the DT have some gorgeous cards using the challenge graphic, so I hope you'll check them out.
I'm going to link this up to the animals challenge at CAS on Friday (assuming a chicken is also an animal?) and the CAS feathered friends challenge at Paper Players.
