Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop and April 2024 Color Challenge!

If you’ve already started the blog hop you should be coming from the talented Stacy Marsh’s blog post. If you’ve just joined in, make sure to do the full hop and see all the wonderful projects created by the Color Fusers Design team! The color scheme for the April 2024 Color Challenge features Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Parakeet Party, one of the retiring 2022 – 2024 In Colors!

Today’s project features the Spotlight on Nature Bundle which includes beautiful images. This bundle is in the NEW 2024-2025 Annual Catalog that goes live on May 1, 2024. I absolutely adore this bundle!

My focal image is stamped in Versamark, heat embossed in black and watercolored with the three color challenge colors. The sentiment is heat embossed in white on basic black cardstock and then fussycut with paper snips.

The Blends are my absolute favorite coloring method. The coloring is a bit quicker than some other methods plus they allow me to do some simple shading which makes me feel like an artist.

I’ve used a bit of black and white checked ribbon and some of the Inked Botanicals designer series paper for a pop of Calypso Coral. This designer paper is retiring on April 30th.

On the focal piece I’ve stamped one of the textural images from the stamp set in Granny Apple Green. Plus I’ve stamped some leaf images on the Parakeet Party cardstock in the same color.

About Me Page

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
