Dreaming of Delicata Gold

Welcome to another Fusion Challenge!  Did you see the entries last week?!  UM....FABULOUS!

This week is going to be just as fantastic, just wait until you see the challenge inspiration and all the DT creations- WOW!  Here is the fab photo and sketch we are working from.

I used the hearts from the photo and the bones of the sketch.  What I really enjoyed doing was glitzing it all up with gold.  Behind the hearts is washi, backed with CS to make it sturdy and popped up with dimensionals.  The wood chip hearts (Freckled Fawn) that go on top were squished (...very technical term) into my Delicata Gold ink from Tsukineko.  This is easily my favorite ink at the moment and I can't seem to get enough of it.  Soooooo luscious and sparkly!  And I think it works really well in contrast to the DP.


So, I hope that you will come and play with us this week!  You can find the rules and information for linking up on the Fusion Card Challenge Blog.

Question of the day- what is your favorite ink brand and color?

Gold hearts, pink diagonal strips, polka-dot banner - it doesn't get more striking and eye-catching than this! Awesome in every way! Ink colours - oh my, with my teensy little stash of inks, I'm not even qualified to answer that question *grin*. I need to win a contest where inks - oodles of them - are the prize. You'd hear me cheering alll the way from Alberta...LOVE your card!!

Cute card, Katie. I love the wood pieces you use in the center.

Wanted to come by and let you know how much I LOVED this card, Katie! The diagonals, dots and gold play so well in the sandbox together. It's shouting, but still nicely CAS.

Katie, I love this card! I love the wood chip hearts especially! :-) I am a fan of Delicata Gold, too. My favourite inks and colour... Oh, too hard! I love SU! inks (especially Poppy Parade), I am loving Mama Elephant inks (especially Hazel), I am also loving Memento Luxe inks (Rose Bud is the perfect pink)... I think I have too many inks... LOL!
