Fusion, Addicted to Stamps, Simon Wednesday and OCC Homework

I'm beginning to understand how some of you get so many cards made in a day.  I had some time in my craft room yesterday and made 4 cards, started a 5th and have an idea for a 6th.  It's like once you get started, the ideas just flow. This card is based on the colors of the Fusion challenge.




This is a NBUS Stamp from Penny Black and I thought it looked a little like the the flowers on the cake.  I wanted to use an idea from the Mask-erade Online Card Class and do an emboss resist so after coloring the flowers with Inktense pencils, I used my embossing pen over them and clear embossed.  I inked the background with Peacock Feathers DI and added a few sequins (mainly because there was a boo boo and I needed to cover it.)  You can see that I didn't do a perfect job with the embossing pen as some of the DI is on the blossoms. The sentiment from PB is stamped in charcoal.

I often forget about the "Anything Goes" challenges but I'll remedy that when I send my card to Addicted to Stamps and Simon Says Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by.  Your visits and comments are truly appreciated.
