I've got my Fusion card to share with you today for Hypothesis #7 (have I mentioned how much I love this challenge yet?!!). This card is a departure from my regular "style", but there were a few techniques that I wanted to try out, and this card seemed perfect for it. As I started playing, I thought the style and the softness of the card would lend itself well to a sympathy card, so that's what it became. I was inspired by both challenges, but I'm no sure how much of Jackie's sketch I actually captured (hmmm, not a lot! maybe just the butterfly!!).
Here's the challenge:
And my card:
The first technique I wanted to try was mixing ink and water, and I did just that with the polka dot background. I really liked the subtle "shabby" effect that resulted. I also wanted to try something that I saw over on Debby Hughes' blog that blew my socks off. Have a look here! So I got out my (limited number of) copics and white embossing powder and went to work. I was happy with how the flowers turned out, considering my "rookie" status when it comes to Copics! Just added the little butterfly, the twine and those little baby pearls. I know, it's all about the sequins now - I'm a little behind in the trend dept (story of my life - ha!!).
Hope you like it! I'm off to see if I can accomplish they Dynamic Duo challenge today. I've already had one "discard" moment - this one has got the better of me for sure! I'll give it one more try :)
Hope you are having a terrific day! Thank you for stopping by :)
