For some reason this Fusion challenge had me stumped for a bit. I was really hooked on the blue and the wood grain in the inspiration photo and just couldn't get off that train of thought. I also liked the negative cut out.
I impressed a piece of Rustic Cream (PTI) cardstock with the woodgrain impression plate (PTI). Then used my distress inks to color over the top of it.
I die cut an apple (Apple Prints, PTI) and then adhered it to my cardbase. I put foam tape on the back of the blue, woodgrain pattern and popped it up on top of the card base.
I also couldn't shake the nautical feel of the photo. I don't have one single anchor, boat, or other nautical stamp set but I thought if I added a bit of red then I'd have the blue and red, which to me is a classic nautical color scheme.
So, that's it in a nutshell. Thanks for taking a gander. I had fun with this one.
