Fusion #4

Hello friends!! time for another Fusion for you to create :) I am sure you all had enough of valentine cards and you must be willing to incorporate other colors into ur cards so this time we have a photo full of colors and life :) Now let us see how will you interpret our third challenge of the year!!
FUSION is a very interesting, 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 as usual. I Fused the two. I was inspired by the colors in the photo and the sketch. 
For my card, I adhered a pattern paper (from Basic grey - Hipster set) on the card base. Then on another piece of white cardstock I did some stamping (from PTI - Ruby reprise clear stamps) by masking as a technique. Inks used were Memento - Rose bud, Angel pink, Bamboo leaves and Hero arts - Butter bar, Bundled sage. I then fuzzy cut this panel around the flowers. The yellow flowers were stamped separately and adhered using foam dots. Sentiment was stamped from the same set.  Finally I adhered this panel over pattern paper base using foam dots and added an embellishment of wood veneer flag ( from Freckled fawn) and a twine (from The Twinery). I also did some distressing all around the edges which finishes my card :)

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 


I am submitting this card to the following challenges as well -
1. House of cards Feb challenge #1 - Photo inspiration - shabby/cute
2. Muse #54 - Therese Calvird
3. A Blog Named Hero #37 - Flowers
summer tones 
  


Well, my post doesn't end here as I have another card to share :) couldn't resist making it 
This one is inspired by the sketch at Retrosketches #101, the colors at Color Me #7 - Striking! and by the Shopping our stash #138 - Oh Shiny !! challenge :) and since this card has a bit bold flower with bold color, I will link this up to CASology Week 82 - BOLD. Yeah !! I know I am good in combining challenge or let's just say I get lucky all the time ;)
I hand drew and cut out these parallel vertical lines on my card base using an exacto knife to match the sketch. Then I cut out the leaves and petals from another card stock using my Spellbinders Foliage dies. I inked up each petal with a mix of Hero arts - Raspbery Jam and Memento - Grape jelly ink to achieve the desired color. Then I inked the leaf with Adriondack pool ink and adhered all the elements on card. I added gem stones in pool color purchased from a local craft store. Sentiment is from Paper sweeties :)
