FUSION Challenge - Jan 2nd, 2014

The day has arrived when I begin the new year 2014 on my blog with this very first post... so here's wishing you a very Happy New Year !! May this year brings you all that your heart desires :) My heart desires a lot of things, everything crafty :D, yeah!! that's the greedy crafter in me talking. 
But at this time, my heart wants to thank some one very special, a friend, a well wisher who mailed a lot of crafty goodness for me just to make my new year much more creative :) Thank you so much. This card and many more to come will acknowledge my thankfulness to her :) and a big thanks to my husband for surprising me with a set of 20 washi tape plus a dispenser (from We are Memory Keepers). You just made my New year newer :)
FUSION is a very interesting challenge, it gives us a photo and a sketch, so possibilities are endless with the freedom given in the challenge. You can just work with the sketch or just photo but in my case I Fused the two. 
To make this card, I scored the central panel using Martha Stewart score board. I inked up the feather die (sent by my friend) with Hero Hues Chalk ink - Night, the wood veneer hexagons (from Studio Calico) with Hero Arts Shadow Ink - Raspberry Jam n Chalk Ink - Poppy. I stuck the washi tape n rest of the elements together. Added the banner of sentiment from Paper sweeties. Finishing touches were added by twine and drops of ink.

There is a lot more inspiration available for you by our lovely team. Go and check out :) Also, for more details about the challenge please visit Fusion Card Challenge

  5. First...you are really, really good. Seriously good. I would never in a million years been able to combine so many different elements to make them appear as though they came together in a kit, or stamp/die set. I am in awe! Love the scoring...and the perfectly random placement of the ink splotches too. Beautiful card.
