Happy Today with FUSION...

This fortnight I was inspired by both the FUSION sketch (in mirror reverse) and this gorgeous image, with its ombre colours and old book print. I created both the watercolour panel and the book paper panel by inking one side of Tim Holtz Faded Dots stencil using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw, then spritzing and pressing the mask into the paper panels. Then added three Prima butterflies (the top butterfly is actually pink, but it kept photographing as red!), and two Studio Calico wood veneer words to create this birthday card.

How will you be inspired by this fortnights FUSION - will you use this fabulous sketch, or pull inspiration from this gorgeous inspiration photo or BOTH?!?

How to join in the fun...
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.
