Hello FUSION

Inspired by the colours and textures of this fortnight's FUSION, together with the gorgeous scripty background and of course the fabulous FUSION sketch! Combining two layers of yellow flowers and a couple of white fabric leaves from my stash with a silver tulle flower as the centre to create the flower. The Prima butterfly was stamped onto vellum using Momento Ink, then coloured on the back using yellow gelatos and fussy cut. The Heidi Swapp wood veneer "hello" sentiment is pop dotted against the MME scripty striped paper and dark grey background. The edges are also inked in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

Mixed Media Card Challenge with Wings...



Had super fun getting messy for this months Mixed Media Card Challenge. First up I ripped a couple of pieces of printed Tim Holtz tissue paper and gessoed these onto cardstock, then oversprayed with Heidi Swapp bronze, didn't like the drippy effect so much so I used a baby wipe to spread the colour more evenly. Coloured the moths and butterfly using a variety of teal, green, brown and white gelatos. Stamped the Paper Smooches Party Posse "birthday" sentiment and die cut the Winnie and Walter "happy" sentiment from pearlised cardstock (in lieu of the optional foil element!) layered with Kaisercraft textured patterened paper. Swiped the edges of the background piece with Distress Ink and mounted on pearlised cardstock base.

FUSION - To the STARS and back...


I hope you enjoyed a wonderful relaxing and refreshing Easter, ready for another fabulous FUSION challenge. 

I thought I'd steer away from the floral theme and focus on the silver and blues from the inspiration photo, and rotated the sketch 90 degrees to create this "to the stars and back" card. These too cute bears are from Mama Elephant Bear Hugs, stamped in Momento Ink Rich Cocoa on Gelatoed watercolour paper then fussy cut. The starry sky was created using a dark blue pearl cardstock, inked along the top edge with Distress Inks Black Soot then stamped with Winnie & Walter Scenery - Big Bang Confetti in Momento Ink Wedding Dress and heat embossed with Superfine Silver, as was the Mama Elephant Shooting Star sentiment and Studio Calico wood veneer star.

Time for this fortnights FUSION inspiration, and just look at that luscious lemon icing!
