Sending HappyThoughts...

Happy Anniversary to Fusion Card Challenge!

Hello Everyone, I was invited by lovely Katie to join the One Year Anniversary Celebration of Fusion.
For the celebration they have made this wonderful sketch and photo for us to create our designs with.

For my project I used the photo, I really love the chalkboard and gold :)

I first drew a square pencil mark on my watercolor paper and stamped the flowers from Wplus9 Pretty Little Peonies stamp set. After stamping then I watercolored each images, once the images dried then I erased the pencil mark on the panel. I really love gold, I added some splatter of gold mist from Heidi Swapp Color Mists in Gold.

For the chalkboard panel I cut a 2 1/2 X 3 inches of black cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment "Sending Happy Thoughts" from Strictly Sentiments 2 stamp set, then added some white chalk ink around the sentiment to give that chalkboard feel. To give it a gold border on the panel I swiped the ink pad of Versamark ink on all the corners and dipped each corner on gold embossing powder and used the heat tool to melt the powder for the gold border look.

To finish off the card I adhere the chalkboard panel with foam tape for dimension.

Here's the full view of the card.

I hope you guys enjoyed!
I hope you will join in the festivities at Fusion.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy New Year again to everyone :)
