Fusion Card Challenge #3

Hi there

Today I've made a card for the challenge over at Fusion Card Challenge.  Unfortunately, I missed the first two weeks on this new challenge blog but when I saw the inspiration photo I really wanted to enter this one.  I love the colour combo, my bedroom used to be almost identical!

The idea of this challenge is to use the sketch or the photo as inspiration, or a Fusion of the two.  You can see the inspiration photo further down in this post.

Here is my card, I chose to combine the two inspirations to create a Fusion...


 
I used dies to cut out the leaves and flowers.  I have scored the black panel at the base to mirror the stripes in the inspiration photo.  Here is a closer view to show the detail...
 
 
 
Materials used:
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Leafy Accents; Sizzix - Flower Layers #6
  • Cardstock: Papermania Premium Textured Cardstock (pink); Black cardstock from stash
  • Stamp: Marion Emberson Designs - On your special day
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Ribbon and dewdrop from stash
 
 
Here are the inspiration photos for the challenge...

  7. Thanks for your kind comments on my posting to this challenge--this fusion aspect is such great fun! Love your use of the pearly card-stock and the grey brad for the flower. Using the pink for the leaves vs the petals adds an element of surprise.
