Blue Leaves

Welcome!  I'm here with a card for the newest Fusion Challenge.  Check out this graphic!

I love both options so much I decided to create a fusion and after playing around with some alcohol inks, I came up with this card:

That tag is so gorgeous in real life.  The blues are so rich and the silver mixative adds such a beautiful metallic look.  I've had alcohol inks since I first began stamping but watching Jennifer McGuire's video a couple of weeks ago inspired me to get them out and get inky and this was one of the panels that resulted.

The leaves were die-cut from patterned and solid paper using some beautiful Impression Obsession die sets.  I sponged around the edges of the leaves to add a bit of dimension and added a tiny twine bow.  The sentiment is silver-embossed onto black and I finished the card with some black Nuvo Crystal Drops - although one of them was a bit bigger than I planned 😄

Thanks so much for visiting!  Head on over and check out what the rest of the DT have done - you'll see a few more fusions and some all-round gorgeous cards!
