Lighthouse Anniversary Card – Fusion Card Challenge {Elegance}

fusion {elegance} anniversary

I got motivated by the latest Fusion Card Challenge {Elegance} over the weekend.

I embossed the lighthouse, and then colored around it with Copics.

Here is the Fusion inspiration:

My clouds replace the circles in the sketch, and I was inspired by the red and blue in the photo.

Skyline Birthday Card

nathans city birthday

One of Offspring2’s friends celebrated a birthday recently. This friend is studying architecture. Over spring break, Offspring2 had friends over and I did not have time to clean up my crafting mess, and the friends were all a bit surprised – “your mom does WHAT?”…except for the architecture student. He has been over twice since then to create.

I am hoping he “gets” this mixed media creation!

I did not have a cloud stencil, but I did have cloud dies, so I made the stencils I needed to apply embossing paste. Here is a close up of the texture of the clouds:

“When it rains” Card

I was moving one of my scrap bags (I have 3 bags of scraps from previous projects – extra pieces I cut, or extra sentiments I stamped), and these polka dot clouds caught my attention. I have other projects I need to be working on, but these clouds were in my creative way.

I gave each cloud a silver lining, and scattered a few crystal raindrops. I really love how the card turned out.

Remember to look for the silver lining!
