Fabulous Friday Fusion #12


Fabulous Friday, folks...time for a new Fusion Challenge!  
I adore the clean & simple sketch with the colorfully bold and whimsey photo!  Hope you'll play along this week!

I was also inspired by the Lawnscaping Challenge #60: Dimension!  You know how I love layers and dimension on my projects!


How did I get the brilliant water-colored effect on the big speech bubbly?!  I scored a new stash of Faber-Castell Gelatos from Jo-Ann's yesterday...and they are FANTASTIC!  They are like a chapstick crayon that glides along your paper like butter...then, sweep across with your water brush and get the most beautiful effect!  I'm in love with Gelatos! 


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Fabulous card, Stacey! I keep telling myself I don't need Gelatos...may have to give them a try after all....

Beautiful, as always, Stacey. ;-) I love how these bright colors and patterns pop against the white. The sequins and twine and thread are such lovely touches.
