Triple Fusion!

Standard

In this card I am combining a technique we learned in the current Online Card Class, CAS 3 — masking borders — with both halves of the Fusion Challenge number 6:

I like the sketch and the green flowers, and the masking technique went pretty well with the sketch, so it all came together easily. Here’s the card:

As you can see I masked off the center of the card, and stamped the flowers over it.  I stamped the flowers with a Faber-Castell Stamper’s Big Brush pen, and colored them in with a combination of Big Brush pens and Promarkers.

Here are the colors I used:  Promarkers — Bright Green, Meadow Green, Lime Twist. Big Brush — May Green 170, Light Green 171, Chromium Green Opaque 174.

The sentiment is from Recollections, and i stamped it in Kelly Green pigment ink from Inkadinkado.  I thought I needed a really bright kelly green for that.

I’m not Irish — Scottish — but hey, the challenge was green, St. Patrick’s day is coming up, and I had that sentiment, so why not?

The card base is either Recollections or DCWV, I can’t remember.  I have really been liking square cards lately for some reason.

The flower stamps are Ditto/Studio G.  Yes, I like my cheap big-box stamps, but come on, they’re cute. They’re perfectly cute and they cost like three dollars.  And they are cling-mounted red rubber, so they are perfectly adequate stamps. They worked really well in this challenge I think.  Oh, and I have never used them before, and only used the Stamper’s Big Brush pens once, so this card is majorly NBUS and stash-crashing.  So I am quite happy with it.
