Inky Thanks

    Hi and welcome!  I'm here with my card for the latest challenge at Fusion.  This time I played with the sketch and pulled in the colours from the photo to come up with this card.

I hot-foiled the sentiment onto a white panel and then went to work with lots of alcohol inks to create the panel at the bottom.  Once I was finished, it was a bit bold, so I covered it with vellum to tone it down a bit.  Some strips of embossed cardstock completed the sketch and I finished with some red and white baker's twine.

Here's a photo showing the alcohol-inked panel under the vellum.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.

I'm playing along with the Thankful theme at Time Out Challenges.

Karren, this is wonderful! Man are you good with those AI's - the chef in me is seeing oyster mushrooms! Meant in a very good way!

Stunning work Karren, and I love how you muted the coloured panel, then used texture and twine in the top panel to add interest

What a cool card Karren. Love the idea of the vellum over that fabulous inky background.

Fab card Karren. Love that AI panel under the vellum - gives it a soft subtle look.

This is simply gorgeous. I love the AI panel with and without the vellum. I am with Michele on the oyster mushroom thing. Your AI inking is fantastic! Thanks so much for playing with us at Time Out!
