FUSION & Fabulous...

By the time you are reading this I'll be away on a FABULOUS
crafty long weekend with some amazingly talented ladies!
I hope you manage to squeeze in some crafty time soon :)

Now back to your regular programming...

I'll be the first to admit that this fortnight's FUSION pushed me outside my comfort zone! Will you be inspired by the neutral tones, natural elements, theme or texture of this fortnights photo, or will you be inspired by this fabulous FUSION sketch - or BOTH?

This fortnight, I was inspired by the neutral colours and theme from the FUSION photo and the fabulous sketch. Digging deep in my stash I rediscovered this chipboard lady - complete with script on her skirt, and I built my card around that.  I thought she looked rather classy and fabulous, so paired her with this sentiment from Unity. Stamped this fabulous sentiment stamp multiple times in a brick pattern using Momento Ink Toffee Crunch to create the background. Overstamped in black to create the strip from the sketch. To reinforce the theme, cut the fabulous and sentiment panels with Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles, double mounted the sentiment (instead of having a second panel on an angle) and adhered to a black cardstock base.

How to play:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Rules Page before playing along.

 Head over to the FUSION blog for some more spectacular
