Fusion #3

There is a very sad face sitting at this computer screen.  Again I missed a deadline.  I spent a lot of time and endured considerable hair loss trying to come up with a card for CAS this Sketch.  My fault.  I hadn't written the deadline time on my "challenge chart" and mistakenly thought it was today.  I'm not going to show it to you now because it may come in handy later.  I'm just telling you this so you'll all be careful in checking the challenge deadlines.

Instead, I'm posting my Fusion challenge card early so I don't miss that deadline.  Here is the challenge:

Last week the fusion section won and I have a feeling it will win again this week.  That's the one I chose.


This old brain of mine can't remember who posted this technique on their blog.  I think it was Kelly Griglione at Notable Nest but when I went in search of it on her blog I couldn't it find it to link it up.  Anyway, it's called stained glass.  I stamped the bird from a set by Inkadinkadoo (that I got cheap at Marshall's) with Versa Mark and embossed with black embossing powder on vellum.  Then, and here's the good part, I colored it from the back side with a fushia marker.  I love the effect.  The sentiment from PTI is also embossed in black.  I was ecstatic to find that my tape gun of choice (Glue Arts) has tape that is invisible under vellum.  Yippee!

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Have a wonderful day!

  4. Totally hear you on the missing deadlines downer ... hate seeing "collection closed" when I go to link up. I missed the recent Paper Crafts call extension this Sunday and was so sad looking at the 5 cards that weren't going anywhere. Lesson learned!

    LOVE your stained glass card with the black embossing and the marker on the reverse side! I wish I could take credit, but I don't think it was me. A really great effect. SO glad you joined the Fusion Challenge, Bobby!!

  8. I am late getting to this, Bobby, but had to tell you how stunning it is! I love that trick of coloring on the back of vellum. I know what you mean about missing deadlines. I tried keeping a chart, but that got confusing ... we just do the best we can! Your card that missed the deadline will come in handy for some other challenge.
