Two Challenges!

There’s a new challenge in town! It’s the Fusion Card challenge ( and there are several ways to play it. As you can see, you have options:

And when the submission time is closed, all those who entered get to vote on their favorite!

Fortunately, for me, CAS-Fridays (  has a similar challenge theme this week –

So, I made this card for these challenges –


I love the look of watercolor so I pulled out my Memento markers, went to coloring my stamps directly, spritzing with water and then stamping! Love the look!  I created my own colored paper – one sheet per each of the following Hero Art’s colors – Soft Green, Bubblegum, Soft Yellow and Butterbar. From these sheets, I used various dies to make the flowers and leafs. I assembled them with Glossy Accents.

The circles were die cut from paper I had watercolor stamped with a chevron background. The inner most circle is glued down directly on the paper, while the second circle has one level of dimensional adhesive, and the outermost circle has 2 level of dimensional adhesive under it. It gives the project kind of a telescoping effect!

  • Stamps: Hero Arts Zig Zag Background (CG422); sentiment from Hero Arts Made With Love set (CL491)
  • Papers: Neenah Solar White, Ponderosa Pine Linen 80# cardstock,’s Pearl Metallic 80# Text
