Fusion Challenge Sunflowers & MIM #183 & Virginia's View Challenge


Fusion Challenge has this autumn inspiration:


I combined the two (photo and sketch),
for this card:


I think it was Heather Nichols that used the bleach technique for a
PTI Make It Monday.
I love doing it! Allows for coloring on a dark card stock,
such as the Enchanted Evening I used.
Colored with watercolors.
PTI: Botanical Blocks, Fancy That
Quatrefoil die
Zing EP: Mustard
PTI Cardstocks

Also posting in PTI's MIM this week with Dawn;
Dry Emboss over Heat Emboss

Make It Monday #183: Dry Embossing Over Heat Embossing

edited to add to Virginia's View Challenge #8
I think it's Clean and Simple, so adding to 
Virginia's View Challenge!

  1. This is just stunning. I love the double embossing and how you were able to color on dark card stock. Clearly I missed that MIM, as I am scratching my head wondering how you did it. The impact is just stunning.

  9. I am going to echo all of the other comments. This card is stunning. The rich colors with the orange embossing, which is showing up golden, is a glorious combination. And I'm sure the card is even more magnificent in person. Wow.
