Fusion: chocolate & coffee





We're back with a new Fusion Card Challenge, check it out:

PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Aren't the colors simply amazing?!  I decided to combine the sketch with the colors:

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, recollections/110/white  paper:  studio calico/print shop  stamps:  reverse confetti/i like you ink:  distress ink spiced marmalade/picked raspberry & seedless preserves other:  reverse confetti/circles 'n scallops confetti cuts, craft foam, chalkboard paint

Lately I've been really admiring everyone's ability to design a card with inky goodness.  I took some different distress inks and tried to get inky.  I need to work on blending but you get the idea :)  I added more splats of black chalkboard paint!

I love using craft foam, it adds such fun to a card design, dontcha think?
