Fusion Challenge - Stained Glass Hearts & an Announcement!

Hello there, blog friends! I am thrilled and honored to share with you that I am the newest DT member for the Fusion Challenge! As you may know, Fusion challenges us to use either the sketch or inspiration photo or both (Fusion) and for my first card I went with a Fusion:


In my feeble attempt to include the 'stained glass' component of the inspiration photo, I created a panel with Peerless watercolors as a background for the Mosaic Heart and for the stitched hearts. I added a stitched border and embossed the sentiment in white on black to ground the design. Lastly, I added a few crystal gems for sparkle, and that was it!

The Design Team girls have created some gorgeous cards for this challenge! Please feel free to stop by the Fusion Challenge Blog to check them out...and of course, we would love it if you would like to play along with us! 

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Products:
Stamps: MFT - Flamazing (sentiment)
Dies: SSS - Mosaic Heart; Lil' Inkers - Stitched Hearts
Ink: Versamark; Peerless Watercolors
Misc: Lucy's Jewels - Ice Cube Mix; Hero Arts White EP
