It's Your Time to Shine
Here’s my card for the current Fusion challenge. I used the layout along with the shimmery metallic seen in the inspiration photo to design my card. I don’t have any realistic beach themed images similar to the ones seen in the inspiration photo, so I switched things up and used a lightbulb in a nod to the illuminated candles in the photo.
Mama Elephant Lights Out stamp set on white cardstock, then added a little color with Copic markers. The star filament (I think that’s what the piece at the center of the bulb is called . . . ) was paper pieced with a scrap of gold cardstock. Then, I stamped the bulb outline a second time on an oval panel and added a halo of yellow around it with my markers, sort of like the glow from a lit light bulb, and added the colored image over it with foam tape. The “it’s your time to shine” sentiment was stamped beneath the bulb in black ink.
I adhered a strip of gold cardstock, edged with narrow strips of silver paper, to the center of a white card base. The image panel is adhered over the gold panel. To anchor the light bulb, I ran a piece of twine from the end of the bulb, extending over the top edge of the gold paper.
