Think Snow Card – Fusion {embossed ombre} Challenge


fusion ombre think snow

I had every intention of using the inspiration photo AND the sketch for the Fusion {embossed ombre} Challenge. Really, I even took notes on what I wanted to do. (and Offspring3 thinks it is really funny that I keep writing “hombre” instead of “ombre”…too many years of Spanish class, ombre is French!) Executing my notes, I took a different direction.

Here is the challenge inspiration:

I used a Heidi Swapp mini stencil to create the background. I embossed the “think snow” directly onto the background…and the embossing powder didn’t stick to all of the letters. RATS. I stamped it again on white cardstock and cut it with a speech bubble die. The acrylic snowflakes were in my hoard (and no identifying information).

I used one ink blending foam for this project, working the lighter color (Tumbled Glass) first. When I was done, I rinsed it out. All of the Distress Ink rinsed out completely, and the foam shows no signs of wear.

Thanks for stopping by!
