Another Awesome FUSION...

Another FABulous week of inspiration in the FUSION gallery and 
a huge THANK YOU to everyone who is playing along! 
I hope you are having as much fun as we are!!!

I can't wait to see what this weeks FUSION Hypothesis brings - will you be inspired by this FAB sketch, or this gorgeous photo - or BOTH?!?   Be inspired by the gorgeous textures or fibers, the neutral colours with a POP of bright, the twigs or flowers, the tag or fabric...

This week I was drawn by the gorgeous white painted wood background - I've been hording a scrap piece of this paper for a special occasion!!!  Luckily I was able to stretch my scraps by cutting my piece in two and adding a pop-dotted strip of this neutral spotted paper (another horded scrap!) to fill the space in between.  The kraft die-cut branch was left over from this earlier card-making effort.  I created my butterfly by swiping a scrap of watercolour paper with Wild Honey Distress Ink, before spritzing with Glimmermist Gold, heat setting and then die cutting my butterfly, and adding a few Kaisercraft gems.  The sentiment is created using a combination of Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday "You are", Basic Grey wood veneer "awesome" and WPlus9 "today and always".
