Fusion Card Challenge


Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is ‘Mint’



I love mint green, but I don't have the proper ink colors, so I went with aqua. I decided to go with elements on the inspiration photo, namely the pretty feather in the top right corner. I started by embossing the feather die, then lining up the stamp using 3 shades of ink to create an ombre' effect, like the yarn at the bottom of the photo. To add texture, I embossed the sentiment and accents on the feather with gold EP.  Here is a close-up of the impression that was created by dry embossing the feather ~



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 beautiful cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

This is spectacular, Barb! I couldn't believe when I open your post. I've spent the last two days making 18 different designs using this feather from back in the day! Talk about great minds! It's such a pretty feather and I haven't used it for so many years. I have to say, I wish I'd seen this before I put all my stuff away. It never occurred to me to gold-emboss the dots over the feather and I'm in love with it!! Hugs, Darnell
