I'm giddy with excitement to be sharing my first DT card as a new member of the FUSION Challenge team. Still wandering about in the Land of WOW about this marvelous opportunity to play alongside a group of incredibly talented designers.
Before I share the challenge and my card, a huge THANK YOU to those of you who spend part of your day visiting my blog and leaving heart-warming, supportive, delightful comments. It's because of YOU that I've embarked on this 'big step' along the path of a new journey. So deeply grateful for your encouragement! I'm one lucky gal!
Okay, before I get even more teary-eyed thinking about how blessed I am....let's check out the new FUSION Challenge. I adore every. single. thing. about this inspiration board: the eye-catching, artsy logo sporting a jazzy colour combination and stylish font; the cool sketch; the gorgeous photo...Very cool. Very inspiring.
For those of you new to FUSION challenges, and for those good friends returning: a quick outline of how things work:
PROCEDURES:1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
Plenty of choices, right? Right!
My eye was drawn to the photo, specifically the striking combination of green and black. Out came my new Concord and 9th Brushed Blossom set for a play. In love. 'nuff said. I inked up my flowers, buds and 'splatters' with several layers of New Sprout Memento Ink to create the impression of depth and surrounded them with Versamark black inked leaves and sentiment. My design is totally not original, as I just followed the arrangement from the C9 site; why mess with WOW *grin*
Since I had everything out, I made a second..."just because"...
The cloudy weather we've been enveloped in makes my images appear a tad 'faint', but in real life, they are quite lively. My mom has both cards..and apparently they're headed off to some special friends, which makes me ultra happy!
Please be sure to check out my amazing 'new' team's creations; their translations of the challenge are guaranteed to leave you breathless...
