Hello! I’m happy to share with you that I am now a designer for the Fusion Card Challenge! This fun challenge gives you, the artist, three different options!
Let the either the photo or the sketch inspire you, or go all out and use both!
I’m an overachiever so I tried to use both 🙂 I say ‘tried’ because I didn’t manage to use both completely:
I flipped the sketch and then tried to emulate the colors in the photo. I didn’t quite get that pretty soft greenish color in there, mine’s a bit darker, but overall, I am pleased!
I used a new-to-me technique that I ran across recently. I used a wadded up tissue to pick up ink from my ink pad and apply it to my stamp. You can see how I added a bit of a darker tone to my pumpkins, above. The tissue gives a softer look than direct ink, or using the rock-n-roll method.
I used this technique again on my leaf (above), I love the look I achieved and hope that with practice I can get even better results. I would love to know if you try this technique and whether or not you are pleased with it!
The wonderful Fusion Card Challenge design team has created some fabulous cards to inspire you this week, so be sure to stop by and check them out! Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
