Fusion Card Challenge - Fall Porch

Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion! If you're enjoying the cooler temperatures and beautiful autumn colors like we are right now in most of North America, then you'll be inspired by the photo, just as I was...


I'm really loving this wreath, so I decided to use it again for this challenge. This time, I used the color palette in the photo and linen cardstock for my card base. I stamped the wreath onto X-Press It cardstock and colored all the images with Copic markers. I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder, added a small enamel dot to the bloom, and a touch of WOS to a few of the images for some sparkle.

My teammates have created some really beautiful cards, and I hope you'll check them out and join us for this challenge...whether you find your inspiration in the sketch or the photo or both, we would love to see your creations in the Fusion Gallery!

Thanks so much for stopping by,







Supplies:
Stamps - Pretty Pink Posh - Autumn Wreath; MFT - Fall Friends (sentiment)
Dies: Pretty Pink Posh - Autumn Wreath
Misc: Wink of Stella - Clear Sparkle Pen; Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder. My Mind's Eye - Enamel Dots; Uniball Signo White Pen

Your wreath is gorgeous! It looks great against the subtle texture of the linen cardstock.

I love the vibrant colors of fall, but I'm not a fan of those cooler temperatures. Summer is where it's at for me!

I'm loving that wreath too, Barb ... especially when it's so beautifully and expertly coloured and shaded! Mine is yet to see ink ... though I know where I'm coming for inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)
