Wow this week is going fast! I'm still suffering with my cold and lately it's just making my teeth ache. In fact one side of my face is a bit swollen. Probably not related to the cold so I went to the dentist. I'm starting a course of antibiotics and I hope they kick in really fast. I've got to take my dad to the hospital on Friday to have his pacemaker replaced and I want to have my happy face on for him.
A new challenge begins today at Fusion - this one is called Orchid Occasions. The Fusion challenge asks you to play with just the photo OR the sketch, and if you are feeling witty you can FUSE them together. I'm always trying to put them together but sometimes it's not so easy.
Check that photo! What do you love - pretty aqua and pink, those long tall vases.. maybe the elegant orchids?
First of all I don't have an orchid stamp or die. I looked everywhere! I decided it didn't matter what sort of flower I used - just be sure to make it a hot pink! LOL! Check!
Next for the shape of that sketch.. an oval AND a strip to the right. I decided to paint an area with the aqua blue of the vase and for the strip on the sketch some stenciling.
I loaded up the stencil with some Golden Light Molding Paste and then sprinkled it with glitter while it was still wet so it would stick.
The hibiscus takes the place of the butterfly on the sketch. I tucked in a few vellum die cut leaves - they're really soft and subtle.
The inspirational sentiment is from CASual Fridays Breathe stamp set. A sprinkle of enamel dots, wood sequins and a bit of washi and I'm done!Need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team by clicking on their names below.
