Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is 'Citrus'. I decided to go with the sketch and used my NBUS stamps and dies from SSS.
I couldn't wait to ink up this stamp set, especially since the summer is coming to a close and I'll be hunting for my autumn-themed sets very soon :) I created a mask for each section and blended Distress Inks to mimic the water, sand, and sky, then colored the images with Copic markers. For fun, I also embossed the sand pails in white EP on a blue inked panel. Lastly, I created an ombre effect with Squeezed Lemonade on the die cut sentiment and horizontal panel and added a touch of Crystal Glaze on the surfboards.
Don't forget the best thing about the Fusion Card Challenge is that you can choose between the sketch and the inspiration photo, or both! My teamies have created some amazing cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!
