Hi and thanks for stopping by! We have another beautiful challenge for you at Fusion this time. It's hand picked for the Holidays! You can work with the inspiration photo OR the sketch. If you're feeling clever just FUSE them together like I did. But first.. check out that photo.. .what do you love about it? Me? I love nature so the birds, berries, and pine branches were a treat for these eyes.
For the focal point of my card I layered some solid card stock, and made a scene of a cardinal on a holly branch. For me the details make all the difference. Red pearl gems became berries. I cut holly leaves from two different shades of green. A brush of Copic marker on the bird wing made it a shade darker, and a bitty google eye on the cardinal brought him to life!
All the dies I used on this project are from Top Dog Dies. Maybe you heard? They're closing the site. If there are any dies you've been wanting and "have to have", now's the time. Everything in the store is 40-50% off while supplies last.
You can get all the details and link up your designs here at Fusion Card Challenge!
